High Winds Blow Tree Down

October 30, 2012

  10/31/12 Tropical storm Sandy sent winds gusting as high as 50 mph across parts of Indiana on Tuesday while the state sent utility crews and emergency responders to other states to help deal with its fury.

  A huge tree near the intersection of Lake Avenue and 5th Street came down Tuesday morning in the winds.  Crews from NIPSCO were on site for a hours retaining the damaged electric lines and poles.

    Those NIPSCO crews were on site more then a few hours!!! The crews were out there working when I got up at 5:50 a.m. and THEY ARE STILL OUT THERE WORKING and it is now 7:21 P.M.!! The tree took down 3 big electric lines, broke off cross arms, and broke at least 1 pole. I live across the street from where this tree fell.

    Many thanks to the NIPSCO CREWS and the CREWS from MISHAWAKA TREE SERVICE for taking care of the damage.
