Prolonged Outage Takes Power from Hayden Homes

According to a post on the Kootenai Electric Cooperative (KEC) from Three Sunday afternoon, Many homes may be without power for several hours: "KEC has a large outage in the Hayden area caused by a car vs pole accident near Ramsey and Boekel Roads. Multiple KEC crews are working to restore power. The pole affected will need to be replaced, which can take 8-10 hours. Crews are working on some switching so some members can be restored in the next couple hours. All members affected should be prepared for the outage to last at least 8-10 hours. We will post updates as they are available."

It is unclear from the Cooperative's website if power has been restored.
