COOS BAY, Ore. – Thousands of customers have regained power after an hours-long outage in Coos Bay on Friday.

Officials with Pacific Power said the outage was due to transmission interruption by animal interference. 

Power was fully restored just after noon, officials said. The outage affected at least 5,000 customers at one point this morning.

Madison Elementary and Sunset Middle were open despite the power outage in the Empire and Charleston areas. Officials said students are safe, and teachers were being creative in their lessons. Students will be bused home on the normal Friday schedule.
