PUD updates information regularly


Klickitat PUD has been issuing steady updates on its power repairs since the first outages struck. In its most recent one as of press time, the following information was provided:

“Klickitat PUD continues to have power outages in areas throughout the county due to down lines and broken power poles. However, progress is being made in several areas.

“Approximately 1,850 customers are still out of power at this time.

“We are aware of the damage in the following areas and will continue to work as crews are available: Fisher Hill, Kelly Road, Dooley Road, Gilmer Valley, Cooke Road, Northwestern Lakes, Oak Ridge, Rattlesnake Road, Gilmer Valley, B-Z Glenwood Hwy, Glade area of Bickleton, Warner Road, Little Mtn Road, Sunnyside Rd, Laurel Rd, and Courtney Road.

“Once all the major areas are back in service, KPUD will then look at the large numbers of individual services that are still out of power. That will likely take several days to complete.

“In addition to your KPUD crews, we have two crews from Benton PUD, two crews from Franklin PUD, as well as two crews from Cowlitz PUD, and one crew from Clallam PUD on site working on the outages.
