Utility crews continue to restore power after ice brought down power lines in southern Indiana and the heaviest snowfall in 13 years buried central Indiana under a foot of snow.

Some 89,000 homes and businesses remain without power after power lines buckled under up to three-quarters of an inch of ice.

The Indiana National Guard sent 17 soldiers to the Evansville area to help move people to shelters.

Officials with Vectren and Duke Energy, meanwhile, summoned a combined 600 utility workers from other states to help their crews restore power over the next several days.

Indianapolis reported a snow depth of 12.5 inches, the most since 1996.

Snow collapsed the roof of a marina on Lake Monroe near Bloomington, damaging 14 boats.
