LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - Those dark skies came with wind, lightning, and rain in many cases. Parts of greater Lafayette have been dealing with spotty power outages.
Eltson Road by Old US Highway 231 South in Lafayette has reopened after a cable line came crashing down on the road. A little after 2:00 pm strong winds and heavy rains pushed down the power line.
Lafayette Police Department redirected traffic while the fire department cleared the road. No injuries were reported.
Duke Energy's online outage map also shows an outage affecting a couple dozen homes in downtown West Lafayette right now - and a few other scattered reports affecting only one or two homes.
