Duke Energy has restored power to all but 249 of its more than 38,000 customers affected by thunderstorms that swept through Indiana early Sunday morning.

The company's Web site reports that some customers in Tippecanoe, Vermillion, Vigo and Monroe counties were still waiting for service to be restored as of 5:35 a.m. Power had been restored to all but about 2,500 customers by Sunday night.

Wind damage was reported in several counties, with trees and power lines down in numerous areas.

The National Weather Service says damage that initially was reported as a possible tornado in Henry County was believed to have been caused by straight-line winds.

The counties with the most outages included Vigo, with nearly 8,000, and Tippecanoe, with about 3,000.
