CENTRAL POINT, Ore. — Businesses, residences and stoplights have lost power between Table Rock and Hamrick Roads in Central Point after a power pole apparently snapped.

Latest reports from the scene indicated that power in the immediate area will be out for hours—perhaps most of the day.

The pole is located near the Super 8 motel on Biddle Road. Pacific Power was in the process of working on the pole when the top length of it broke.

Initial witnesses reported power lines down in the roadway, sparking.

A current alert on the Pacific Power website lists this as a single outage affecting 780 customers. Crews and authorities are on the scene.

NewsWatch 12 has a reporter on the scene and will update with more details as they emerge.
