(ANGOLA) - No injuries were reported in the city of Angola but the clean up continues after a fast moving severe thunderstorm went through early Tuesday morning. Winds that measured as high as 66 miles an hour knocked down trees throughout the city. Some wound up on houses. At four were reported to be damaged. In the 500 block of East Gilmore, Heather Meston and her two young children had to get assistance from the Angola Fire Department after a tree and live wires fell on her house. The same thing happened to a house in the 300 block of East Broad. A large tree estimated to be about 80 years old fell on John Weiss' home in the 200 block of North Washington. He and his family managed to get to safety. Another large tree fell down on North Wayne and just barely missed the offices of Pay Serv.

Calvary Lane between Williams and North Wayne Street in Angola was closed because of a downed tree and power lines.

Damage included a billboard on North Wayne near Meijer that got partially blown over.

NIPSCO says all available crews are working to assess damage from Monday night’s powerful storms. Damage is widespread across NIPSCO’s entire service area, including more than 500 downed lines, 100 broken poles and transformer and other equipment damage. Over 75,000 NIPSCO customers were still without power late Tuesday morning, down from a peak of 118,000. The total includes 330 customers in Angola, 57 in Hudson, 105 in Howe, 1,064 in LaGrange, 497 in Ligonier and 736 in Shipshewana.

Steuben County R.E.M.C. reported over 700 customers had lost power and it would take of the day for repairs to be made as crews had to deal with broken poles.
