Nearly a foot of snow fell on Central Oregon overnight and the heavy wet snow managed to cancel most schools and trigger many power outages. Over 10,000 customers have been affected by power outages all over Central Oregon this morning.  Jan Mitchell is the Pacific Power spokesperson: “We’re still assessing all the damage. And out crews are hard at work to get everyone restored as quickly and as safely as possible. But it could be an extended outage. It could go several days for some customers. We are bringing in crews from other areas to assist. Crews from Albany, Walla Walla, Grants Pass, Pendleton, all coming in to assist the crews that are already there.” Mitchell says the heaviest hit area is in Bend, but power is out in many other places including Redmond, Prineville and the Sisters area. She reminds people not to touch any downed power lines and to turn on your porch light so crews will know when power is restored to your area.
