There is some damage to the footing of a transmission tower caused by a nearby swollen creek. Scott said that that problem is small compared to the road damage. Another problem KEA faces; how to pay the bill.

Scott said that assessment of the damage and cost estimates will be completed this week. He emphasized that the Terror Lake plant itself was not damaged.
