Snow Impacts

Posted on 25th February 2011 at 08:46

The snow also had a number of other impacts; the Cowlitz PUD responded to a pair of power outages, one on Allen Street and the second up on Ostrander Road. 219 customers at the east end of Allen Street lost power at 6:39 pm, when a snow-laden limb took down a line in the area of PG Sweet Road. Those repairs were completed at 10:47 pm. 21 customers were affected up on Ostrander, also by a tree falling into an overhead line. Several other small outages have also been reported. The folks at the DAPC facility on South Silver Lake Road called 911 at about 8:20 pm, claiming that someone was shooting at their facility. They claimed to have heard someone firing a semi-automatic weapon at their buildings, with as many as 20 rounds fired, including some that had hit the building. Deputies responded and checked the area, and it was eventually determined that the sounds were coming from chunks of snow falling out of the trees and hitting the building’s roof.
