Power outage hits thousands here

Nearly 2,000 Pacific Power customers in the Sunnyside and Outlook areas were without power this morning, Wednesday.

The outage was reported at 9:50 a.m., noted Bill Clemens, regional community manager for Pacific Power.

Clemens said the outage was caused by a broken line. He indicated electricity was out to 1,973 customers.

Tom Gauntt is a spokesperson for the utility, and he said power was restored to all customers by 10:50 a.m.

Gauntt noted the location of the problem is somewhere between Granger and Sunnyside. “It’s a fairly big swath for that area.”
