Planned Power Outage
Sunday, Between Orofino and Weippe
OROFINO, ID – Plan for a power outage if you live near Greer, Weippe, or Pierce, ID. Sunday Avista is making upgrades to their transmission infrastructure between Orofino and Weippe. Around 660 Clearwater Power customers will experience the outage. It will start at 6:00 am on Sunday, and last until 2:00 pm the same day. A press release says that you will be notified if you will be affected. Because of the remote locations they have to access to replace some of the poles, you may notice a helicopter overhead during that time. When it passes overhead, highways 12 and 11 will be at least partially closed.
