WIN Energy customers in both Sullivan and Vigo counties were experiencing outages, with over 100 customers affected in Sullivan and over 75 affected in Vigo. The cause of the outages, representative Leslie Beard said, is broken poles and crews are currently either on the scene or on their way to fix the damage and solve the outages.
