Power outage causes delay for most Elkhart Truth newspaper deliveries for Friday, May 16

Only a third of The Elkhart Truth’s Friday edition was printed before a fire in South Bend, followed by a power outage. Missing papers will be delivered Saturday.

Posted on May 16, 2014 at 6:40 a.m.

Most newspaper deliveries of The Elkhart Truth will be delayed until Saturday after a fire underground in a man hole caused damage to power circuits in South Bend Thursday night, May 15.

Only a third of the newspapers were printed before the outages. For those who don’t get a Friday edition of the newspaper, it will be delivered on Saturday. As of 1:30 p.m. Friday, the printing presses were up and running again in South Bend.

Friday’s edition can be viewed online for free via our new digital edition. The Elkhart Truth sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience.

The fire and subsequent outages in South Bend originated at Washington Street and Lafayette Boulevard, as reported by The Elkhart Truth’s news partner WNDU.

Erica Putt, communications representative for I&M, said in a press release Friday morning that workers are waiting for the smoke to clear from the fire to begin assessing the damage done to the underground equipment.

As of 6:30 a.m. about 800 I&M customers were still without power, Putt said. Those customers include, among other places, where The Elkhart Truth is printed and South Bend Memorial Hospital, WNDU reported.
