FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Area homes and buildings are starting to light up again after the weekend’s weather damage.

Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) has restored power for more than 15,000 customers across its service territory.

I&M predicts most Indiana customers to have power by 10 p.m. Sunday. The Fort Wayne numbers, which were nearing 1,000 at the highest, came down to about 72 by 10 a.m. Sunday.

Viewers sent in footage of the damage that tore down power lines, street signs, and scattered debris around the area.

This video, filmed by viewer Josh Hubell, shows a pole swinging in the wind on OH-49 south of Hicksville Saturday.

“Our hearts go out to those in the path of the tornadoes, and to those who lost loved ones to the
storms,” I&M said.

Blue circles on the map indicate areas with fewer than 10 outages. Orange and red are the colors to look out for– they show where areas would be that have more than 100 outages.
