SEARING HEAT: 90s then triple digits again; heat effects on fish, wildlife long term?

July 1, 2012

The drought gripping Whitley County and Indiana has parched lawns and stunted crops, but its effects on fish and wildlife might not be seen for years, biologists say.

Whitley County is in the midst of an unprecedented heat cycle, spanning to March of this year. With temperatures stuck in the mid- to upper-90s – and a 104 reading last Thursday – the searing temps are projected for days to come. In fact, forecasters predict the current spate of 90+ degree readings will escalate to triple digits – that's right, 100+ degrees – later this coming week.

POWERLESS: Friday's wind storm still causing wide-spread problems

COLUMBIA CITY – Although electricity was quickly restored in Whitley County from Friday afternoon's powerful storms, other nearby areas are not faring nearly as well.

Utility crews were still working to restore electricity to about 74,000 customers in northern Indiana two days after a storm that packed winds as high as 91 mph hit the state.

Indiana Michigan Power reported most of those without power were in the Fort Wayne area, where 62,000 customers remained without power Sunday morning. The utility projects that electricity in Allen County should be restored by late Wednesday night.
