Power still out in Stevens County…

Good evening, Netizens…

Last night’s wind storm must have truly clobbered portions of Northern Stevens County above Colville as tonight, more than 24 hours since the wind blew through Spokane causng a few outages that were repaired within 4-5 hours, there are still over 500 residents and businesses north of Colville without power according to the Avista web site.

From the looks of the Avista outage map one would surmise most of the remaining power outages are perhaps in the fringe areas of the Colville National Forest which are always susceptible to downed tree limbs and other tree-related damage in remote areas.

In some cases it takes a few days for Avista’s big trucks to navigate remote wilderness roads. However, one would also presume that would imply Avista would perform line maintenance more often to minimize such occurrences from happening in the future.
