UPDATE: Power has been restored to the Price area.
“The outage was on Price City’s system and did not affect any Rocky Mountain Power customers,” stated Jeff Hymas from Rocky Mountain Power. “There was a bit of confusion this morning on who it was affecting.”
According to Ken Harney from Price City, the outage at the substation has been fixed temporarily.
“We have to order parts to fix the problem in the substation,” Harney explained. “Parts are harder to come by for that substation. For the time being, we have rerouted so that people can have power. When we go to make a permanent fix, we will alert residents.”
Pinnacle Canyon Academy will start school at 10 a.m.
