Windstorm Issues – 11/29-30/22

Last night during the windstorm, power was lost on Saturna Island affecting our broadcasters that serve Pender Island, eastern Saturna Island, and parts of northern Orcas.  The local power company estimates that the power will be restored by 10 am today.

On Orcas, one of our backhaul radios in Eastsound was blown out of alignment, causing throughput loss to customers across central Orcas.  Our backup radio is currently sustaining the backhaul, and our techs plan to realign the other radio later this morning.
