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.

    Coffee is life: Washington woman's hands-free drinking tip goes viral

    VANCOUVER, Wash. - With Washington's new distracted driving law in effect, holding a phone while behind the wheel could cost you. In addition to the cell phone crackdown, the law makes eating, drinking or other activities that could potentially take your hands off the wheel secondary offenses. That means if you run a stop sign while drinking a cup of coffee and get pulled over for running the stop sign, you could get a $99 fine for drinking that coffee.
