SPOKANE, Wash. - Over the course of the last 72 hours, Inland Power has had multiple small outages spread throughout Whitman and Garfield Counties. These outages are a result of dense fog and frost build up on our overhead distribution lines

Crews are patrolling the lines to proactively remove frost from our lines where needed by beating the lines with a hot stick. Inland Power crews have been working around the clock to restore power to areas that have had their service interrupted. As of 9:00 a.m., power has been restored to all of our members. We would like to make our members aware that as the weather warms up and the frost falls off the power lines it may cause blinking lights as the distribution lines bounce from the weight removal.

For full details of current and past power outages please visit our Outage Center at inlandpower.com.

August and September is mating season for the hobo and that means you may be seeing more funnel-like webs in and around your home. Males are on a mission to find a female which is why they are a lot more active at this time.>>
