Pacific Power crews have restored power to more than 3,200 Pacific Power customers from Myrtle Creek to Sutherlin on Wednesday afternoon, after windy weather rolled through the county.

At one point Wednesday, 1,655 customers were affected in the Green area, another 1,280 in Sutherlin and more than 300 in Myrtle Creek.

As of 8 p.m. Wednesday, less than a handful of people remained without power, according to the company website.

The storm also impacted the AM radio transmitter for Brooke Communications, knocking KQEN-AM 1240 and KRSK-AM 1490 "The Score" off the airwaves as of Thursday morning. Listeners can access those stations via, via live stream on the 541radio app or through an Alexa-enabled device.

Listeners can still access "The Score" at 92.3 on the FM dial.
