Vera gets power restored in southeast Valley

A power outage that left an estimated 1,300 customers of Vera Power & Light in southeastern Spokane Valley without electricity today for nearly two hours was the result of equipment failure at a substation, officials said.
Power was restored by 1:25 p.m., a utility spokeswoman said.
Vera is a publicly owned utility providing water and electricity to about 10,000 customers in Spokane Valley.

The utility, which fielded several calls from residents worried about the frigid temperatures, credited its work crews for quickly finding the problem and getting it fixed.
