The Whitley County YMCA was used as a warming station Friday after a power outage left more than 8,000 Whitley County residents without electricity. â€śWe havenâ€™t had a lot of people coming in to get warm,â€ť said Erica Miller, director of the YMCA. â€śMost people have been coming in to take a shower before going to work.â€ť Pictured is Chance Krepps, 19 month old son of Dakota Krepps and Kayla Norris, who was brought into the YMCA Friday morning to get warm. He also found a little fun with a ball in the gymnasium. His familyâ€™s home, in Tri Lakes, was without power. Other warming stations included Columbia Cityâ€™s City Hall and the Whitley County Government Center.
