Road damage brought on by the October 9th storm has affected access to a KEA power plant. Darren Scott is the president and CEO of Kodiak Electric Association. He talked about storm damage near the Terror Lake hydroelectric facility.
— (KEA Damage 1 "The plant itself … of the damage.")
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.
Something Scott wishes he had an answer for.
— (KEA Damage 2 "We’re working on … take to fix.")
With funding uncertain, it is possible that customers will feel the impact of the costs.

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.
