Eagle Lake residents without power for nearly a week

Tangled lines and broken cross-arms left the residents of North Pine Street without power for nearly three days. For more photos, see the Feb. 24, 2015 edition of the Lassen County Times.

Thursday, Feb. 26, 2015 — While most Susanville residents were without power for about eight hours following the Friday, Feb. 6 windstorm that hit the West Coast’s electrical grid hard, residents of the Eagle Lake area spent five days without electricity.

According to the Lassen Municipal Utility District, “The epic storm wreaked havoc on LMUD’s electric system as well as the Pacific Gas and Electric lines that feed our system. By 9 a.m. we had a system-wide outage. Downed trees, twisted power lines and poles snapped in two littered Lassen and Plumas counties. PG&E lost power to hundreds of thousands of customers and in turn, LMUD was literally in the dark.”
