Winds Knock Out Power to 18,000 In Lebanon Area

Feb 9, 2015

Winds knocked down as many as a dozen power poles and lines on Highway 34 between Corvallis and Lebanon. The highway is restricted to one lane of traffic as crews repair the damage. The downed lines have caused outages for about 18-thousand customers in Lebanon, Sweet Home, Cascadia and Foster.

Some schools are closing early due to the outage. Pacific Power says on its website it's hoping to have the power back by 1:30 this (Monday) afternoon.

OR 34 (Corvallis-Lebanon Hwy.) is closed approximately one mile west of Lebanon (MP 15.7)in Linn County, due to multiple power poles and power lines down across the highway. Travelers should take an alternate route or expect delays.
