  • OPALCO says that the Aug. 6 pow­er out­age on San Juan Island was due to a for­eign object inter­fer­ing with the island’s trans­mis­sion line. The crew spent sev­er­al hours nar­row­ing down and patrolling the line sec­tion where the fault hap­pened, although the object that caused the issue was nev­er found. After patrolling and ensur­ing the lines were clear, crews began re-pow­er­ing the island in phas­es, restor­ing full ser­vice by 12:30 a.m.
