Almost 3000 customers of Pacific power have been without electricity since 7 this evening. Deschutes County 9-1-1 received reports of a loud explosion about the same time.  Pacific Power now says a circuit break blew at a power substation on SE Cleveland

9-1-1 dispatchers have been swamped with calls. There is no real need to contact them unless you have some type of emergency...as they don't know anything more than what the power company tells them.

The power company is working on the problem and is giving us an estimated time of repair at about 10 PM.  Ifyou have some type of emergency because of the power failure, such as a fire or smoke, or a medical issue, or any other emergency, call 9-1-1, but please don't call them to find out a time of repair.
