Squirrel Leaves Oregon Station in the Dark

Yesterday’s Good Day Oregon show on Portland FOX affiliate KPTV was a bit moodier than usual thanks to a squirrel.

According to the station, Portland General Electric said the squirrel knocked out power to 9,500 customers in Washington County at about 6:30 a.m.

The utility said a squirrel came into contact with some electrical equipment, causing the outage.

KPTV said it used a backup generator to stay on the air. The power came back on by 9:45 a.m.
