The Grays Harbor Public Utility District is notifying customers of a planned power outage beginning at 10:00 AM on Tuesday, December 10, 2019. The outage is expected to last until 3:00 PM on that day and will affect roughly 45 customers. Those impacted are residents of the Viking West Trailer Park at 124 Elma-McCleary Road (excluding slips 10-23) and a handful of customers at the end of Ginny Lane. All impacted customers received a notification phone call from the PUD last week and received a second call on Monday evening.
During the outage, PUD crews will replace an aging pole and equipment which provides power to the impacted area.
In preparation for this outage, customers are advised to take precautions with any electronic equipment such as computers, televisions, and microwaves by unplugging those items. You should leave them disconnected until after the power has been fully restored.
The outage time of five hours is only an estimate and power could be restored at any time as work is completed. Therefore, it is not safe to do electrical work or repairs during that period.
