The Alaska Village Electric Cooperative is reporting few outages after Tuesday night’s storm. Meera Kohler is the President and CEO of AVEC, she says there is a power outage currently in Tununak.
“There we have one feeder that’s tripped. There’s a blown cutout on that feeder and we figure there’s about 40 homes that are out of power there,” Kohler said.
Kohler says a lineman is there now and she expects power to be restored by early evening. Kohler says high winds and driving snow are more problematic than waves for AVEC customers, so she thinks they’re probably going to be ok.
