By Emily Gillespie, Columbian Breaking News Reporter



Clark Public Utilities crews repaired an outage that left about 40 people without power Thursday morning.

The outage was reported just before 8 a.m. north of La Center, according to the utility’s Outages Map.

Power was restored just before 9 a.m., said Erica Erland, spokeswoman for Clark Public Utilities.

The outage was caused by a tree hitting a power line.

Another outage, reported at 7:16 a.m. east of Hockinson, was caused by a vehicle accident that left another 30 people without power. It has been mostly resolved.
