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.
