LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Some along Wabash Avenue in Lafayette had their power knocked out around noon when a semi snagged an over-head line, snapping a utility pole in half.
The truck was traveling down Ellsworth Street when its trailer caught the wire snapping a transformer pole a half a block away.
Power was knocked out at Beutler Packing Company and Sacred grounds Coffee Shop, along with several homes.
Duke Energy estimated the power would be restored in 4 to 5 hours.
A Lafayette man charged with multiple bank robberies in Tippecanoe and Clinton Counties pleads guilty to a series of bank robberies in Illinois.
The drop in temperatures brings the potential for health dangers, such as hypothermia and frost bite. The bitter temperatures can pose a threat for children, adults and pets.
As it stands Wednesday, there will be no FEMA aid for tornado survivors in Howard County.
