Limited Power Outages Seen in Tri-Cities

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Power utilities in the Tri-Cities area report minimal interruption from the wind storm that visited the area the morning of Friday, Dec. 15.

Franklin PUD quickly restored power to just over two hundred customers who had service interrupted, and Benton PUD reported just a handful of isolated interruptions.

Both utilities sent crews to the Chelan area, and the west side of the state to assist power crews there.

Benton PUD officials recommend that homeowners contact their power company if they are concerned that trees on their property may threaten power lines.
