KPBX is back on the air, though at reduced power. The station was only available via streaming for much of the weekend because power was interrupted at the station's transmitter site. KPBX is now powered via its generator.

The power pole that carried electricity to the transmitter site was knocked down. Avista crews will work to replace it.
