NOW: First day for Mishawaka students cut short

MISHAWAKA, Ind. -- A number of schools in Mishawaka lost power during their first day of school on Wednesday.

The loss of power left many Mishawaka students in the dark and without air conditioning, sending students at Mishawaka High School home early on Wednesday.

After losing power around 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, some students reported that the school became uncomfortable in the dark and hot conditions, but were upbeat after getting out of classes early.

“The electricity went out. It was pretty normal until the storm came, and then it wasn’t. We didn’t get to go to our fourth block classes, so we didn’t get to see one of our teachers, but we’ll figure it out, you know,” two students said.

Power also went out at Beiger Elementary and Preschool, but has been restored.
