DANVILLE, Ind. (June 21, 2015) – About 3,000 people in Danville woke up Monday morning to find their power was out.

Powerful weekends storms didn’t have much to do with it. Duke Energy officials said a mobile substation in Avon overheated and failed Sunday, leaving residents in Hendricks County without electricity. The substation experienced the failure twice: once around 2 p.m. and again around 9 p.m.

As of 11 p.m. Sunday, almost 3,000 residents were still waiting on power to be restored. By late Monday morning, power was back on for most customers.

The exact cause of the outage remains under investigation, the company said.
