Update published at 9:45 a.m.:

Southeastern Indiana REMC spokesman Barry Lauber says the utility co-op plans for service in Ohio County and Aurora to be restored soon.

About 800 customers in the area lost service at around 6:00 a.m. when a large tree fell onto a three-phase power line in the area of Hueseman and Laughery Creek roads. Lauber said saturated soil caused the tree to topple into the lines.

SEI REMC crews have been busy making the necessary repairs since 7:00 a.m.
