That is pretty critical information with no notice??? Medical equipment dependent on it...heat when it is so cold, etc. Hard to believe that would just happen unannounced.

I dont see anything on the IREA web site or facebook page. Did someone hack a CDOT sign? :lol:

Evidently, one can sign up for texted alerts.

Were all of the signs you noticed around the Old Safeway/Staples center? Anytime Fitness had signs saying IREA was working on something in the plaza last night.

We, also in KZ, recorded a horrendous gust of wind at 10:35am which my weather station logged as 36mph - one of the highest gusts I have ever recorded.
Moments later our power went out and stayed out until 12:58pm.

I called the IREA reporting number and, after numerous responses to automatic inquiries, was told that IREA had 1,300+ customers out of power at that time.

I think the wind gust rolled down Deer Creek Valley and caused a "line slap" that shorted the power and likely took out a transformer.

We got a followup automated call to advise that the power had been restored (we knew that) and were given a number to call if we were still not powered back up.

We think IREA does a great job and can remember many years back when power outages were more frequent and for longer periods of time.
Thanks, IREA!
