There is currently a power outage in the Seldovia area. The power went out at 6:10 Monday morning. The Gerry Willard Generation Plant in Seldovia was put on line and is currently providing power to Nanwalek, Port Graham, and part of Seldovia. The area from the generation plant and along Jakolof Bay Road to McKeon Flats is without power at this time. The area received heavy snow last night and the cause of the outage is likely a tree on the power line. At first light, weather permitting, an HEA crew will take a helicopter to the area to locate the problem and make repairs.
Please remember to always stay away from down power lines. The lines are extremely dangerous and getting too close to a line can cause serious injury or death.
