Duke Energy Restores Power Grid

Last updated on Wednesday, July 23, 2008

(UNDATED) - Duke Energy is reporting having most of the storm damage to the power grid repaired.

Duke says 80% of all power problems had been taken care of by yesterday afternoon, and this morning, all but 11,000 Duke customers are back online.

Almost all current outages are in Vigo and Vermillion counties, as they were overall the hardest hit.

In the listening area, all but 1 customer in Monroe County has had their power restored. They shouldn't have any further problems today or tomorrow in the area as sunny skies are forecast, but storms have a healthy chance of returning on Friday.
