Power restored after lightning knocked out transformer in LaPorte County

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Did the thunderstorms wake you up on Sunday night?

Heavy rain pounded the area.

We shot this video around 12:30 a.m. in South Bend.

In LaPorte County, lightning struck a transformer at a substation and knocked out power to hundreds.

Power has since been restored.

Indiana Michigan Power told us crews had to bring in a mobile transformer.
