CRESCENT CITY, Calif. — Pacific Power crews worked throughout the night making repairs to storm-damaged equipment in Northern California and Southern Oregon to restore power to customers affected by a powerful Pacific storm with high winds and heavy snow in the mountains. The number of customers affected has been reduced significantly from approximately 19,000 at the peak of the storm to approximately 1,700 by 10 a.m. Wednesday.
“Restoration continues and crews will continue working to restore power as quickly as possible. Pacific Power has arranged for additional assistance to come from other locations to respond to outages in the harder hit areas and we expect to see good restoration progress throughout the day,” said David Lucas, Pacific Power vice president, operations.
Pacific Power is supporting a community meal at the Foursquare Church in Crescent City on Thursday. Anyone in the community is invited to participate, including any who might still be affected by a power outage.
