Bonneville Power Administration working on power line outages
Utility customers working on multiple outages on their systems as well

Portland, Oregon – Heavy winds and saturated soil have combined to take BPA power lines from the central Oregon Coast to the Puget Sound coast and areas inland out of service.

“This storm hit us hard on the coast and the west side overnight,” said John Lahti, BPA Transmission Field Services vice president. “Our crews are working to assess the damage and repair lines as quickly and safely as possible to restore power to our customers experiencing outages.”

Multiple field crews are responding to the outages and damage. If you have questions regarding BPA outages, please contact Doug Johnson, BPA senior spokesperson at 503-713-7658.
