Power restored for Arbor Village, rest of city in process

The city of Banks said that Portland General Electric had restored power for customers in the Arbor Village subdivision, and that crews were working to restore power to the rest of their customers in Banks city limits.

Those living outside of city limits, and perhaps a handful of homes and businesses at the edge of the city on the north and east boundaries are in the utility company’s “Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) Higher Risk” area where power will remain cut until the company determines wildfire risk has lessened, possibly starting sometime Saturday if conditions allow.
