Morning outage

Wednesday, May 4, 2011
Putnam County Sheriff's Deputy Danny Wallace directs traffic during a Wednesday morning power outage at the intersection of Indiana and Washington streets. Downtown Greencastle was without power beginning shortly before 9 a.m. Duke Energy took approximately one hour to fix the problem, which area manager Steve Bahr described as an equipment failure cause by several switches failing.

  • How many others lost equipment over this outage. Was at a local bank and they had a couple of issues with computers. I had a printer-fax- copy printer wouldn't turn back on! Any others have issues with your equipment?

    Just curious, now I have to pay my bill to Duke, Go out and buy some makers to make some copies.

    Duke stay away from Nukes...

  • macvrod...I'll bet you are also the first to call Duke when your power goes out. Think about the good they do before you condemn others. That is what surge protectors are for.

  • They offer whole-house surge protectors that are very inexpensive compared to, say, a printer-fax- copy machine.

  • Never have called them...Didn't even call after this incident.

    Actually enjoy not having the power on for a while on a nice day. Surge protectors helps most of the time.

    But not this time I guess.
