FORT LEWIS, WA — Fort Lewis continues to experience area power outages and brown-outs due to an equipment failure that occurred on-post on Thursday.
The substation that was initially affected has been restored; however, utility crews are continuing to repair other equipment and restore normal power.
Traffic lights are out at some intersections on post, and drivers should use caution when crossing these intersections.
Currently, the Fort Lewis commissary is open, but the Fort Lewis Post Exchange is closed.
Military families and retirees who plan to shop at these facilities should call the Fort Lewis hotline at 253-967-1733 for updated information until power is fully restored.
