Households in the Horn Rapids neighborhood in north Richland lost power Wednesday afternoon amid the prolonged heatwave. Some homes were without power for more than three hours in triple-digit temperatures because of a faulty cable. Information on how many customers were involved in the outage was not released. “Please take extra precautions to keep your home from heating up by closing window shades and blinds and limit opening the refrigerator and/or freezer,” city staff wrote in a 1:30 p.m. post to Facebook after the outage began. By 4 p.m. more than half of customers had power restored and the city was reminding residents that the Richland Public Library was available for people to cool down.
Not long after that line crews had restored power to homes in the Horn Rapids area and were working to get commercial customers back online. The city announced that power had been fully restored at 4:42 p.m. Temperatures at the Richland Airport were forecast Wednesday to reach 108 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.
The Tri-Cities and other Eastern Washington communities are under an excessive heat warning through Saturday, July 30. The forecast calls for Tri-Cities highs of 109 Thursday and Friday, 108 Saturday and 107 Sunday, before temperatures drop into the 90s on Monday.
