A portion of the PUD Fiber Optic connection was burned in the Carlton Complex Fire, and then on Wednesday, a storm broke a section of the backup system. This has resulted in unplanned outages. The PUD is working to restore connectivity. As of 9:00a.m. some of the network has been restored. If you are still without internet, please reboot the power to your router and then reboot the power to your radio. If that does not resolve your issue, you may leave a message at 509-557-3562. We will return calls and trouble shoot as we are able. Please note that cellular service is also out for many of the County residents.
Thank You for your patience during this difficult time. Bill Swayze
7/21/14 @ approximately 8:45 a.m. - I just got off the phone with the PUD. They are still working on assessing the damage in a whole at least 20 miles of Fiber Optic will need to be replaced along with 100's of Power poles. Access Points have burnt up and will need to be replaced. with that being said i have been given a "weeks not days" time frame to have things fixed. Please keep in mind this is a "Loose" estimate as fires are still burning in some of those areas and they will NOT be able to get in there until the fire are out. Again thanks for you patience as we move froward. Please know that everyone is doing everything they can do fix things but it's going to take some time. Please share this link so people can get updates.
Thank You, Bill Swayze
