Power went out just after 1 P.M. and was restored around 4 P.M.

 

Jeff Beaman with Central Electric Cooperative explains what caused the outage.

 

"Ultimately we detected the problem in the line in the Tumalo area.  Trees can cause these outages because transmission lines sag during hot weather. The high temperatures cause the metal to expand.  Most other times this is not an issue."

 

Beaman says clearing lines from trees is a year-round job for the electric company, but sometimes in extreme weather crews miss some.
