Fewer than 5,000 utility customers still without power

Indiana's power companies are making progress in fixing outages around the state, with fewer than 5,000 customers remaining without electricity.

Indianapolis Power & Light Co. said about 4,700 homes and businesses were still without service late Wednesday morning.

Duke Energy Corp. reported 94 outages across Indiana at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The combined outages were down from more than 40,000 power outages Monday after temperatures plunged into the negative teens.

IPL says it could take until Thursday to restore all electricity. It blames most of the outages on Sunday's heavy snowfall on trees and power lines.

Numerous shelters were opened around the state to help those without power or stranded travelers.
