UPDATE: Power restored in South Bend after afternoon outage

Posted: Updated:

More than 9,000 power customers in St. Joseph County were without power Wednesday afternoon.

Indiana Michigan Power says a contracting crew hit something that shutdown a substation, knocking out power for a large area.

The area affected was in and around Indiana University South Bend.  IUSB canceled all classes for the rest of the day.

As of 5:30 p.m., I&M's online outage tracker says all power has now been restored.
