More than 3,000 NIPSCO  customers in La Porte County were without power

today due to the strong winds.

According to NIPSCO.....a vast majority of the outages were

in Michigan City.

Some trees were down but not as many as expected.

La Porte County Highway Department Superintendent Bob Young

says coming into work this morning from LaCrosse....he didn't see

many fallen trees.

He expects more to be discovered after daybreak.

Young cautions drivers to keep their eyes open for the possibility

of trees lying across the road...and be prepared for the strong gusts while driving

because of the push the wind can give vehicles on the roadway.
