Power outage affects 2,500 homes

Posted: June 24, 2013 - 9:59pm

An outage early Monday morning from south of Anchor Point to north of Ninilchik affected 2,500 homes before crews were able to restore power.

In an email, Joe Gallagher with Homer Electric Association Inc., said the outage began at 4:07 a.m. affecting 1,400 homes between Anchor Point to 10 miles north of Ninilchik. At 7 a.m., the outage grew to affect an additional 1,100 HEA members south of Anchor Point including North Fork Road, Old Sterling Highway and Sterling Highway to Blackwater Bend.

Gallagher said power was restored to the area south of Anchor Point at 7:30 a.m. The outage area between Anchor Point and north of Ninilchik was restored at 9:55 a.m.

He said the outage was caused by a faulty insulator on a power pole at mile 152.2 Sterling Highway.
