According to a Northwest Energy spokeswoman, many circuits lost power in Lolo, Alberton Florence and Missoula due to a violent windstorm. As of 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, two substations were reporting power losses, specifically station #5 that feeds Missoula's south side (and is reportedly back on-line) and substation #7 that feeds Missoula's west side. Northwest Energy is not giving an estimated time of repair for any of the areas, but is currently working to fix the power outages.
