UPDATE: Power restored in northwest Elkhart


Around 1200 Indiana Michigan Power customers lost power for nearly two hours Tuesday.

I&M says the outage was due to a failure of an underground line on the city's northwest side. Power was restored shortly before 1:30 p.m.

Some Elkhart Community Schools were impacted, along with the district's administration building.  School officials say some students had to have cold lunch, but their were not any major difficulties.
