Prince George, B.C.- The wind storm that  ripped through the Prince George region  last evening causing power outages, is still being felt by some residents.

B.C. Hydro says it could be 4 this afternoon before  power is restored to a handful of customers on near Gunn Road and on Tabor Mountain.

Environment Canada Meteorologist  Doug Lundquist  says at the peak of the storm   the wind was  gusting  between 67 to 85 kms per hour at weather stations, “So it was likely  hitting 90 kms per hour in some parts of  the City.”

Downtown  Prince George was the first area to lose power,  with more than 300 customers in the dark before 4 p.m..   With trees  falling  and  either taking out  hydro lines or  at the very least having contact,   the power outage would impact  about 3200 P.G. area customers at its worst.
