The heavy snowfall in northern Indiana has caused numerous power outages scattered across in the area.

Major utilities report about 30,000 homes and businesses were without electricity late Wednesday morning throughout the state's northern tier from the Gary area across to Fort Wayne.

Indiana Michigan Power says it has about 8,000 outages in Allen County, which includes Fort Wayne. Northern Indiana Public Service Co. has several thousand outages in northwestern Indiana's Lake and Porter counties, along with many in largely rural areas southeast of South Bend.

The National Weather Service office says up to 6 inches of snow fell by late morning in some parts of northern Indiana.
