Power outage stops Observer presses
Observer staff report
The Observer will not publish in print today due to a power outage at The Papers, the printing facility that prints the newspaper.
It is the first time in 23 years the paper has not published on newsprint.
An overnight ice storm froze South Bend Wednesday night, downing power lines and causing tree branches to fall and block roadways. Both Notre Dame and Saint Mary's are open for classes today, however.
The Observer will return to publishing tomorrow, Friday, Feb.1. All of today's content can be found on this Web site.
