Cda power outages

COEUR d'ALENE - More than 2,000 people in the downtown Coeur d'Alene area experienced power outages for a bit more than an hour Saturday afternoon when windy conditions caused trees to blow into power lines.

Avista Utilities spokesperson Laurine Jue said an interrupted "feeder," a major electrical distribution line, was the source of the high volume of outages.

"An entire feeder was affected," she said. "When a feeder goes out, it certainly affects a significant number of customers."

Climatologist Cliff Harris recorded a wind gust of 47 mph at 10:38 a.m. Saturday.Read more. Devin Heilman, Cda Press
