REDMOND, OR -- 5,355 Central Electric Cooperative members lost power yesterday when a goose flew into an overhead power line that crosses the Deschutes River near Eagle Crest. 

 

CEC says the line the goose hit fed off Bonneville Power Administrations' major substation in Redmond, which in turn, cut power to four substations. 
 
The areas affected were around Redmond, south to the north side of Bend, the Tumalo area, and west toward Sisters.
 
Once the source of the outage was ascertained, crews were able to restore power in just over an hour.
