(ANGOLA) - It looks some northern Indiana residents will be spending the 4th of July in the dark. Over 34,000 NIPSCO customers were still without power following the severe weather that swept through northern Indiana during the wee hours of Tuesday morning. Most of the remaining outages are in Elkhart, Lake, LaPorte and Porter counties, although nearly all service areas are reporting damage and electric outages.

NIPSCO says 121,000 customers were out at the height of the storm. Restoration efforts are continuing around the clock but NIPSCO says it is expected to take "multiple days" to repair the electric system damage and restore all customers affected by the storms. Damage is said to be extensive. It includes over 130 broken distribution poles, tree damage and 580 reports of downed electric wire. NIPSCO has secured additional field crew support from Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Missouri.

Several communities still had a significant number of NIPSCO customers without power on Wednesday morning. Angola had 216 customers still off line. Shipshewana still had 748 customers out while 500 customer outages were reported at Middlebury.

Indiana-Michigan Power reported 46,000 customers were out as of Wednesday morning. They say full restoration won't take place until late Saturday night.

Steuben County R.E.M.C. reports all of their customers were back on line as of 9:00pm Tuesday night.
