Power Failure at Porter Hospital

An area hospital was in the dark for over an hour over the weekend.

A power outage and generator malfunction knocked out power at Porter Hospital in Valparaiso.

The power went out at 1:15 Sunday morning and a backup generator also failed.

The national weather service says it was four degrees below zero at the time.

But hospital officials say none of the 160 patients were in any danger.
