High Winds Impact Power

Friday, February 5, 2016 @ 11:29 AM

Prince George, B.C.- BC Hydro crews have been kept hopping this morning in the Prince George area as  spotty power outages have been occurring in the region.

Earlier today,  power was out to about 306 customers in the   downtown area,  everyone was back on line  within a couple of hours.

A tree was down across wires in the Haldi Road area and while power has been restored there,    crews continue to  work on  trying to restore power in the Willow River  area where  a line is down.   There is also a team trying to restore power  in  the Boundary Road-Milwaukee Way area of the BCR site.

Wind gusts  today  could hit 70kms an hour,  increasing the risk of  trees, or  their limbs, coming into contact with  hydro lines.icereport
