At approximately 11:30 a.m. this morning, heavy snow combined with wind and rain snapped the top of a utility pole located on the town side of Middle Bay, causing downed lines and extensive damage. Power has been disrupted to customers in the Chiniak and Pasagshak areas.
KEA crews have been dispatched to the location and are working to repair the damage and restore power to all affected areas.
Power is expected to be restored by early tomorrow morning. KEA wishes to apologize for any inconvenience this outage may have caused, and we thank everyone for their patience.
