A POWER OUTAGE THIS MORNING IMPACTED ABOUT 5 THOUSAND CUSTOMERS IN THE NORTHWEST BEND AREA -
 
SEVERAL TRAFFIC LIGHTS WERE SHUT DOWN- AND MOST BEND F-M RADIO STATIONS WERE KNOCKED OFF THE AIR.
 
TOM GAUNT WITH PACIFIC POWER EXPLAINS WHAT HAPPENED:
 
 "UNFORTUNATELY A SQUIRREL GOT INTO THE SUB-STATION NEAR MIRROR POND DAM- RESULTED IN A FLASH AND A LOUD NOISE-AND POWER OUTAGE FOR ABOUT 5100 CUSTOMERS."
 
THE OUTAGE HIT AROUND 8A AND ONLY LASTED ABOUT 45 MINUTES FOR MOST CUSTOMERS.
SINCE POWER OUTAGES ARE PRETTY COMMON -GAUNT REMINDS YOU TO HAVE AN EMERGENCY KIT AT YOUR HOME AND KEEP YOUR CELL PHONE FULLY CHARGED SO YOU CAN USE IT IN AN EMERGENCY OUTAGE.
