Crews work to get power back for Hoosiers; Carmel High School opened as warming center

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Indianapolis Power & Light Company (IPL) and Duke Energy crews worked to restore power to hundreds of customers as extremely cold weather moves into central Indiana.

We’re told wind is a factor in the power outages, and they're having trouble with the transformers.

As of 1:30 p.m. more than 500 IPL customers and more than 200 Duke customers are affected by the outages. Earlier in the day, those numbers were in the thousands.

As a result of power outages in Carmel, the city has opened a warming center at Carmel High School. Anyone without power or in need of shelter is welcome to come. Please use Door 13, west side, Freshman Center entrance.

For those who are bringing their pets to the warming shelter, they must be in a crate. You'll need to bring accommodations for your animals.
