All Power Restored Following Yesterday’s Storm

9/5/12

Power has been restored to all affected communities across the Kenai Peninsula following last night’s heavy rain and wind storm. Homer Electric Association’s Joe Gallagher told us that HEA crews had been responding to various outages all night into this morning in the Nikiski, Sterling, Soldotna, Kasilof, Homer, and Seldovia areas.

Although all of the reported outages have been restored, HEA does want to remind members that it is very important to remember that any downed power line should always be considered energized and dangerous, and if you see a downed power line, move away from the area immediately and report the incident to HEA or public safety officials. Do not go near the power line, as it can cause serious injury of death.
