Grays Harbor PUD crews have restored power to West Aberdeen after an outage that lasted about 40 minutes. The outage was reported at 2:15 p.m. and impacted large areas of Simpson and Sumner avenues, Fifth Street and Cherry Street. Those impacted included Duffy’s, the Pearsall Building and surrounding residential areas.
PUD spokesman Ian Cope said the outage occurred when a construction crew backed into a power pole and knocked down a transformer. A total of 669 customers have been impacted.
“As far as these outages go, this is supposed to be an easy fix,” Cope said.
