SAMS VALLEY, Ore. — Nearly 4,000 Pacific Power customers in Jackson County were without electricity on Tuesday morning, the company confirmed.

The outage appeared to cover an area including the community of Sams Valley, stretching north and west of Eagle Point. For at least a few hours, the reported numberof customers affected did not change — holding at 3,944 households or businesses.

Pacific Power reported that "loss of supply" was the reason for the outage, and that power should be restored by 11:30 A.M.

Sams Valley Elementary cancelled school just before 10 a.m. due to the enduring outage at the building — impacting even the school's phone system. Subsequent Facebook posts from the school indicated that an unknown number of students remained at the school, and that officials were trying to coordinate getting them home or otherwise keeping them safe.

"If parents are not outside to get their child from the bus this morning, the child will be brought back to the school for safety. Parents, please meet your child at bus stop. Thank you," the school posted.
