EMA Officials Assessing Storm Damage

Storm DamageVolunteer firefighters and Starke County Highway Department employees are clearing roads this morning after strong storms tore through the area late last night. Most of the downed trees are in the Washington Township area east of Knox, according to Starke County Emergency Management officials, who note some have electric lines in them.

Both NIPSCO and Kankakee Valley REMC crews are out trying to restore power. Anyone who needs to travel county roads this morning is urged to drive slowly, as quite a bit of cleanup work still needs to be done.
