SPOKANE, Wash.— The wind stormed that rolled through the Inland Northwest on Tuesday night left more people in the dark than Ice Storm 1996 according to leaders at Avista Utilities.
As of 9:00 p.m., Avista was sorting out more than 161,000 customers who were without power in Spokane County. The outages total about 42% of Avista's customers in Washington and Idaho. Those figures do not include all of the customers with other power companies.
