FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) - A heat wave across the Midwest has caused a portion of Allen County to be without power Tuesday night.
Indiana-Michigan Power officials report more than 3,300 customers in Northwest Fort Wayne went offline about 7:15 p.m.
I&M belongs to a PJM Interconnection, a regional transmission organization that monitors electricity usage over large areas. As a member of PJM, I&M is required to follow PJM restrictions, I&M officials say.
With temperatures soaring to the 90s in the middle part of the country, companies experienced high volume of electricity use. PJM mandated the shutdown of a electricity circuit in Northwest Fort Wayne.
Power was restored by 8:30 p.m.
