One of the scattered power outages reported in the Albany area overnight happened here, on Bryant Way, when Tuesday night’s storm blew a tree across the road. I came across the crew working to fix the outage around mid-day.
They told me power had just been restored. According to Pacific Power’s online outage map, the first report of this one came in at 11:36 Tuesday night. The tree took out some wires, knocking out power to 25 customers.
That map is interesting. It gives a quick overview where outages have been reported, and the status of each. Check it out here.
Just before 1 p.m. today, Bryant Way was still blocked, as the picture shows. By now it’s probably been cleared up.
Unlike the cyclists in the photo, who were coming into Albany on Bryant, I did not climb across the fallen trunk and other debris. I had been headed out that way but turned around instead and took a quick tour of good old Bryant Park. It’s still closed to motor traffic, but the inner road around the park is dry. (hh)
