Inspection Teams To Begin Damage Assessment In Southern Indiana
EVANSVILLE - Federal and state inspectors plan on visiting several Tri-State counties over the next couple of days to look at damage from last month's ice storm.
The Indiana Department of Homeland Security says inspection teams will start work Monday in Perry and Vanderburgh counties, and then throughout the week visit Dubois, Gibson, Spencer and Warrick counties. They say inspection teams will also look at damage in Clark, Crawford, Floyd, Harrison, Jackson, Jefferson, Orange, Switzerland and Washington counties this week.
More than 100,000 homes and businesses in southern Indiana lost power after January's winter storm dumped up to three-quarters of an inch of ice on power lines & poles.
