Duke works with outside contractors to restore power

Duke Energy continues to work to restore power to 170 customers in Bartholomew County and 160 in Brown County.
As of Sunday morning, there are some small pockets of outages that crews are still working on, said Chip Orben, Duke Energy spokesman.
Duke hopes to have power restored to all customers by 6 p.m. today, as long as there are no more thunderstorms, with the help of outside contractors who are assisting Duke crews, Orben said.
Crews are focusing on outages in Monroe, Brown, and Bartholomew counties this morning.
