Wednesday, June 1, 2016 @ 1:00 PM

Prince George, B.C.- The  entire community of Ft. St. James is without electricity and there is no   idea on when  electricity may be restored.

“We  had a failure on a transmission line”  says BC Hydro’s Bob Gammer ” Crews have  assessed the damage and are making a plan to  repair the  problem.”

Power went out  just after 10 this morning,  when  a piece of equipment on a power pole west of Vanderhoof failed.    Just over 2,400 customers are without power,  that includes all businesses as well as residential customers.

Gammer says at this time,  there is no  estimate of  when the problem will be  fixed.


Damn climate change!!

Ha, ha, ha! Good one!
