The Outage Map was also temporarily disabled but is now working.

According to Beth Tokioka, KIUC spokesperson, it appears that there may have been an issue related to one or more of their generating sources, which caused a trip and resulted in the outage.

A full analysis may take several days to complete.

“We appreciate the patience of our members and commend our power supply team for restoring power for all of our 34,000 members in less than an hour,” Tokioka said.
