Traffic lights out south of I-90 on Argonne, Mullan

There's been a lot of chatter on the scanner in the last few minutes about traffic lights being out on Argonne and Mullan south of I-90. It looks lke the lights at the Argonne freeway on and off ramps are also out. I can't tell if there's a backup on the freeway or not because the DOT cameras are also out. Everyone be careful out there.

1:22 p.m. update: The DOT traffic cameras are back up, but I'm not sure about the stop lights. It doesn't look like traffic is backed up on the freeway, though.

Power outage in University City area

A car just hit and knocked over a power pole at Broadway and University, which has turned off the lights in an large area around University City. Traffic lights are out as well, so use caution. Remember that all intersections become four way stops.

10:47 a.m. update: The lights are back on.

Otis Orchards feeling the pain

A car hit a utility pole in Otis Orchards at 4:30 a.m. today and wiped out power and internet for hundreds of residents. Avista was able to restore power within about 90 minutes, but the internet problems are taking a bit longer to fix. Read more details in a story by reporter Tom Sowa.
