Due to at least 10 transmission poles buckling near the Teton Village area of the Moose-Wilson road Tuesday evening, we are experiencing a major power outage in Teton County.
The cause for the downed transmission lines are not yet known though the area is experiencing higher than normal wind gusts.
Lower Valley Energy currently estimates 3,500 – 4,000 customers are without power. The areas affected include Teton Village, the airport, Solitude, John Dodge and Bar B Bar.
LVE hopes to re-route power this evening we expect power to be out for at least several days in some areas.
All Lower Valley Energy crews have been dispatched along with crews from 3 neighboring utilities.
