There was a power outage this morning in LaPorte..

Some factories and businesses in the area of the Thomas Rose Industrial Park

were in the dark......

So far....we don't know if any residences in that area lost power.

Assistant fire chief AC Pressler says a semi truck hit a utility pole guide wire

about 6 a.m....on Boston St.....and the guide wire flexing then broke a power line.

Pressler says lights flickered as far away as Kingsbury Elementary School....

NIPSCO has been called to the scene.
