2022 April Storm

Posted: May 10, 2022 at 1:46 pm

Elmhurst lineworkers working on a downed power lineWind and hail and sun and snow – it has all happened so far in April!

On April 4, our Line Crews worked 25 hours straight and long days the rest of that week to restore power, and our Customer Service team answered over 1,200 calls. Downed power lines interrupted our power supply from Tacoma City Light delaying the restoration of power. Equipment failures on shared poles with Puget Sound Energy also complicated our efforts.

We wanted to remind everyone that we do have live phone coverage 24×7. If you are unable to get through, it is because the lines are overloaded, not because we aren’t here.

Please keep trying and follow us on Facebook for updates. Our updates are not precise, they are estimates based on the best information we have at the time and impacted by weather and other factors in the field.

Thank you to all our wonderful customers for your patience, good humor, and resilience during stormy times.
