Clallam: Electricity restored Wednesday after two separate outages

A faulty insulator was likely to blame for a power outage that left the Forks and LaPush areas without power for most of Wednesday morning, said Clallam Public Utility District Distribution Engineer Dave Proebstel.

Power to the 3,500 affected customers was restored around 11:30 a.m., about four hours after it went out, Proebstel said.

A unrelated power outage affected 300 customers just west of Port Angeles around 1:30 p.m., Proebstel said.

Power was restored around 3:30 p.m.

A dead tree that fell on the line during high winds is suspected to have been the cause of that outage, according to PUD dispatch.
