FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Strong storms knocked out power in parts of Fort Wayne and flooded roads and homes Tuesday morning.
The Indiana Michigan Power outage map showed several hundred customers without electricity. Most had power restored by mid-afternoon.
Several roads had pooling water, making travel dangerous in places. One neighborhood, Imperial Gardens off Lahmeyer Road, saw heavy flooding at its entrance. The Concordia Gardens neighborhood also experienced significant flooding.
The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo’s parking lot saw flooding when the Spy Run Creek overflowed. The Fort Wayne Fire Department built a temporary road for cars parked in flooded lots of the zoo.
