TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) -- More than 1,500 residents in Lafayette and West Lafayette are still without power Monday morning after strong winds ripped through the county Saturday. Weather Team 18 tracked winds as high as 60 miles an hour Saturday.

A Duke Energy spokesperson said they hope to have all power restored by 6 p.m Monday.

Duke Energy said Tippecanoe County was one of the hardest hit counties across the state by Saturday's strong wind storm. They said they saw power outages in 69 out of all 92 Indiana counties.

As many as 60,000 Tippecanoe County residents lost power at some point in the weekend.

A crew is currently accessing the damage. The company said a separate team working to remove fallen trees before the electricians can begin working.
