Line crews from Pacific Power are still hard at work trying to restore power to more than a thousand customers after Tuesday’s snowstorm. As of 3:30 this morning, 1,473 customers were still without electricity: “Our crews are hard at work getting everyone restored as quickly and as safely as possible, but this will be an extended outage, it could even go into several days for some customers.” Jan Mitchell is with Pacific Power: “At the peak of the outage almost 11,000 customers were without electricity. A foot of very heavy wet snow proved to be too much for some tree limbs, causing them to fall into power lines. The weight of the snow on some power poles and lines exceeded their capacity causing some lines to fall or otherwise fail.” Mitchell says crews will stay on the job until all power is restored.
