Power restored to most in Carlsborg area

Pole broken by wind

CARLSBORG — Clallam County Public Utility District crews had restored electricity to all but 41 customers in the Carlsborg area by 7:45 p.m.Thursday night after a broken power line caused an outage for 527 customers at 8:17 that morning.

A pole and cross arms were broken on Taylor Cutoff Road, said Nicole Hartman, spokesperson. At 3:45 p.m., the PUD reported that the damage was more extensive than originally thought.

The damage was caused by high winds, Hartman said.

Earlier in the day, the Clallam PUD had reported 614 outages in the Carlsborg area.

Jefferson County PUD reported no outages.

The National Weather Service said the wind gusts were caused by a cold front moving through Western Washington, with wind and rain persisting into Friday before another system crosses the region on Saturday.

A stronger system may impact the region Sunday into Monday, according to the National Weather Service, but forecasters were unsure on Thursday as to the direction the storm would take.
