Duke crews continue work on power outage


Follow The Republic:


Duke Energy expected to restore power Monday afternoon to all customers who lost power after a severe thunderstorm passed through Bartholomew County at about 3:34 a.m.

Initially, about 342 customers reported power outages early Monday morning, some within the Columbus city limits and some in the county. All but about 50 had power restored by early afternoon.

Bartholomew County REMC had about 300 customers without power from the storm due to eight broken poles caused by wind damage, said Marty Lasure, REMC manager of public relations and member services. That power outage has been cleared, Lasure said.

At 10:06 a.m. Monday, about 1,889 customers in Elizabethtown lost power because of an equipment failure in the Elizabethtown substation which receives power from a Duke Energy transmission line, Lasure said. Those customers had power restored at 1:30 p.m. Monday, Lasure said.
