SPOKANE, Wash. – For the thousands of Inland Northwest residents who went into the weekend without lights, most of them finally woke up with power on Monday morning.
Utility companies Avista and Inland Power used all their available resources making final repairs over the weekend.
“However there are still many single outages that could take an additional 24 to 48 hours to fully restore,” an Inland Power statement reads on the company website. “We recognize that this has been a very trying time for many of our members and we assure you that we are doing everything within out ability to restore service to your home or business.”
Inland Power’s largest remaining outage is in the Chattaroy area where between 100-500 customers remain without power. Those with continued outages that have not been reported should contact Inland Power at (877) 668-8243
Avista asks its customers with lingering outages to report them online or through its automated phone system at (800) 227-9187.
