Cause Found for Electrical Blinks

Kankakee Valley REMC officials have received word on what caused three separate electrical blinks Thursday night around 8 p.m. CT.

According to spokesperson Amanda Steeb, customers in Hanna, Bass Lake, North Judson and Knox were affected. REMC contacted NIPSCO who found a failed insulator on a pole. The foggy conditions during the evening Thursday and the moisture in the air caused a short in the electric current which led to the short electrical blinks.

Crews are repairing the issue.
