SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) — A utility company estimates it will be Thursday before power is restored to all homes and businesses following icy weather across northern Indiana.

Electric utilities reported at least 25,000 outages Tuesday morning scattered across the northern third of the state, a day after freezing rain and high winds took down trees and power lines.

The heaviest concentration of outages was in the South Bend area, where Indiana Michigan Power says some 5,000 outages remained and that some might not be restored until Thursday night.

Northern Indiana Public Service Co. said crews were making progress and more than half of the 29,000 outages it had Monday evening were fixed.

Scattered road closures remained in central and southern Indiana from heavy rains. Flood warnings continued along the Wabash and White rivers.
