KOKOMO, Ind. -- Indiana's major electric utilities say power has been largely restored in the areas hit by the severe storms that swept across the state Sunday.

Duke Energy reports about 100 outages remained Thursday morning in the Kokomo area, down from more than 1,300 outages the day before.

Indiana Michigan Power Co. says it has fewer than 400 outages remaining the Marion area and fewer than 100 in LaPorte County. The company says it expects to have all power restored in those areas on Thursday.

At least 60,000 homes and business were without power across the state in the hours after the storms hit and toppled utility poles and damaged transmission towers. Utilities had warned it might be Friday before all electricity could be restored.
