Sunday Storm Causes Power Outages Throughout Region

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. - Crews are still working to restore power to several people throughout the region after Sunday night's storms.

Franklin PUD says about 2700 people lost power Sunday night.

As of Monday morning, Kahlotus remains in the dark, and about 75 homes and businesses are without power in North East Pasco.

Benton PUD says thunderstorms caused outages to about 1000 people in Benton County, but crews say most of that electricity is now restored. 

In Oregon, Umatilla Electric and Hermiston Energy Services say falling trees in Hermiston knocked out power to about 10,000 customers, most of which has been restored.

Umatilla Electric says about a mile of transmission lines went down Sunday night, along with more than a mile of distribution lines.
