LMUD & Plumas County Power Outage

LMUD is experiencing a system-wide outage. All customers are without power.

According to the utility the outage is being caused by the sudden failure of PG&E’s Caribou transmission line.

“Unfortunately,” explains LMUD spokesperson Theresa Phillips, “this also caused Honey Lake Power to go offline and at this time connecting to HLP is not an option. We estimate that power will be out for at least 6 hours.”

PG&E personnel are working on repairing the line fault in order to restore power.

This is also effecting folks in PLumas County.
