After two large outages over the past 12 hours, Homer Electric Association says power should be restored to all Nikiski homes, except those along Pipeline Road to Swanson River oil field.
HEA says the cause of the outage was a tree on the line. Crews are currently making repairs in the Pipeline Road area.
This second outage began at 6:30am this morning, affecting the same outage that left 1,500 without power at 11:23pm yesterday. Power had been restored at 6am but was off again 30 minutes later. The affected area reached Miller Loop, sections of Holt Lamplight Road and the length of Pipeline Avenue to the Swanson River oilfield.
