SPOKANE, Wash. - As of Sunday morning. there are less then 1,000 customers without power in the Inland Northwest. Today every available resource will be focused on restoring the remaining scattered outages in Spokane and Deer Park. That includes Avista and contract crews, along with resources from areas that have been restored. They say they will have all customers restored by 6 p.m.


Avista says if your neighbor’s power has been restored and you still don’t have power, or if our website indicates that you have been restored and that is not the case, we need to hear from you. Please contact Avista at avistautilities.com via the web or your mobile device, or call

1-800-227-9187.

Customers can view outage status on Avista’s website at www.avistautilities.com, but due to the extensive damage caused by the storm estimated restoration times will continue to be updated as new information becomes available.

When calling to report outages customers may experience longer hold times because of call volume. Customers can also report outages online at www.avistautilities.com and through their mobile device.

If customers see that their neighbors power has been restored and theirs hasn’t Avista suggests to call 800-227-9187 to report the outage.

    CASCADE, Idaho (AP) - An Idaho man is out more than $20,000 after he set up an epic solar eclipse festival that an underwhelming amount of people showed up to. KIVI-TV reported Tuesday that Jeff Webb's eclipse festival in Cascade was complete with campsites, shuttles for parking, eight live bands, portable toilets and food for thousands of people. Webb spent nearly $7,000 on portable toilets alone. But to his surprise, only a few dozen eclipse enthusiasts showed up.
