- At this hour Kootenai Electric has approximately 1,600 members without power. The outages are scattered throughout Kootenai County with a large outage in the Hayden area. Heavy snow contributed to the majority of the outages during the night/this morning. KEC crews have been working through the night and continue to work now to restore power. Broken poles and transformers that need to be replaced are making the restoration process more time-consuming that usual.
