Powerline down

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Just after 6 p.m., Great Falls Fire Rescue posted this message on Facebook:

Live Powerline down on 9th St and 4th Ave S that is creating traffic problems and hazards to bystanders… please avoid the area to allow crews to work safely.

I drove by at about 7:30 p.m., and 9th Street was blocked by GFPD from 2nd Street South to 5th Street South.

There were also firefighters and NorthWestern Energy workers.

As of 8:30 p.m., several people in and around that area say that they are still without power.

The NorthWestern Energy “outage map” page estimates that power will be restore by 1 a.m., and says the outage is affecting 372 customers.

Kudos to the emergency and utility crews for working to get things fixed!
