SPOKANE, Wash. — Avista is still working to restore power across the Inland Northwest after Wednesday’s windstorm—and they expect people may have to wait as late as Sunday before their lights come back on.

The power company published a list of estimated restoration times; customers in Davenport, Othello and Sandpoint should have power restored Thursday or Friday. Colville, Coeur d’Alene and St. Maries is expected to have power restored Saturday.

Spokane should be completely back online by Sunday evening. In the meantime, over 50,000 people are without power.

Kellogg is still being assessed, according to the list. Avista notes that restoration times can change if crews finish repairs sooner than expected.
