> 5000 KECustomers w/o power

Following yesterday’s snowstorm, Kootenai Electric Cooperative currently has scattered outages affecting more than 5,000 members. Due to the nature of the storm and the type of damage we cannot provide estimates at this time. All KEC crews are working and we have called in additional contractor crews. We have crews working in the following areas this morning: Cougar Gulch, Athol and Bayview. We hope to provide an update later this afternoon with more information. As a reminder, stay away from downed power lines and report power outages and electrical emergencies to 1-877-744-1055 FREE. H/T: Taylor Viydo/KREM 2
