Power Outage in East Pasco Now Restored

A power outage in east Pasco forced several schools to go a few hours without any electricity this morning.

A faulty underground cable cut out power at Whittier and Robinson Elementary and Ochoa Middle Schools from 7a.m. until about 11a.m.

About 1,700 Franklin PUD customers were also out of power in that area.

The cable was replaced and power is now back on.
