Bird Outage

Posted on 29th May 2015 at 09:08

The Cowlitz PUD says that a “very large bird” was responsible for a power outage that affected a large portion of Longview yesterday afternoon. The outage hit shortly after noon, affecting 53 hundred PUD customers when the Washington Way Substation went down. The area covered went from 15th Avenue to the Olympic Addition neighborhood at the west end of town. Traffic lights all across the area went down, and power to Robert Gray Elementary School was also lost. Power was restored by 1 pm.
