Power returns to South Bend after third outage in four days

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Electricity has been restored to those who live and work just south of the University of Notre Dame's campus after a third power outage in a week. 

The number of customers without power was 3,519 at 4 a.m.

Areas in the Northeast side of the city included Leeper Park, Eddy Street Commons, Portage Avenue to California Ave, and Twyckenham Drive from south of Angela Boulevard to Sunnymeade Ave.

I&M says a cable malfunctioned in an underground subsystem, which triggered a breaker.

An outage in the same area was caused by an underground fire in Downtown South Bend on Monday and a widespread outage in Mishawaka was caused by a fallen tree on Tuesday. 

Customers northwest of the South Bend International Airport, near the Indiana Toll Road and Cleveland Road did experience a planned outage. I&M says these customers were notified.
