Saturday, May 31, Noon – HEA crews are responding to a large number of power outages today.  The outages are the result of strong winds that are continuing to hit the Kenai Peninsula this afternoon.   As of noon there are approximately 4,000 HEA members without power.  Outage areas include:

  • Large section of the City of Soldotna
  • Forest Drive/St. Theresa (between Soldotna and Sterling)
  • Skyline Drive (Soldotna)
  • Strawberry Road (Soldotna)
  • Aliak/Magic Ave. (Kenai)
  • Halibut Cove
  • Nikiski area (Holt Lamplight, Swanson River Oil Field)
  • Riverview Ave./Kobuk area (Soldotna)
  • Tote Road area (near Kasilof)

In addition to these outages, there are several smaller scattered outages across the Peninsula.  HEA crews are working to restore power as soon as possible, but due to the number of outages and the strong winds, the duration of the outages is likely to be extended.

If you do not have power, please call the outage hotline at 1-888-8OUTAGE.
