Storms leave many powerless

November 1, 2013

High overnight winds knocked down trees and created power outages and traffic snarls at several city intersections. As many as 25,000 Indianapolis Power & Light customers lost power at some point during the storm. About 6,000, including 2,600 on the south side, were still without electricity Friday morning. Police reported significant damage off U.S. 31 near East Thompson Road, including broken poles, downed wires and circuit problems.
