More power outages pop up in Fort St. John

Just fewer than 1,100 are still in the dark in the Dawson Creek area, which Hydro hopes to reduce to only 30 by the end of the day. 

200 customers in Chetwynd and 40 in Hudson’s Hope and Moberly Lake are still without power from Tuesday night’s wind storm, but it’s expected they will all be restored by 7 p.m. tonight. 

All of Tumbler Ridge had their electricity back on yesterday, but there will be a short outage for five minutes sometime today as B.C. Hydro returns circuits there to normal. In efforts to restore power earlier, the two circuits that cover the town were tied together to isolate parts of one that needed repairs. When those repairs are complete the circuits will be separated again, during which time power will be out.
