WINDSTORM 2014: Avista releases details of outage; biggest in past 18 years

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash.- Avista Utilities has crews working around the clock to restore power to their customers, and in a release Monday the company said it is 92% of the way there. Avista called in contract crews from Seattle, Tacoma, Portland and Boise to help restore power to the some 48,000 customers who lost power in the wake of Saturday's powerful storm.

The company says it expects that 95% of customers will have power restored by Tuesday morning. However, because of the extensive damage, it may be Tuesday afternoon before some customers in northwest and north Spokane, Sandpoint, Deer Park and Davenport are returned to service.

Nearly 10,000 more customers were impacted by Saturday's storm than the July 23rd storm that hit the same areas. That first storm was the biggest outage since Ice Storm in 1996.

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 who sustained damage to their electric service may need to contact a licensed electrician to make repairs before Avista can safely restore service. Find out what you need to do at www.avistautilities.com/mastdamage or call 1-800-227-9187.
