Power Restored to Most

Monday, May 1, 2017 @ 4:10 PM

Prince George, B.C.- Power has been restored to nearly all 5,798 customers in Prince George, who were knocked off the grid  this afternoon.

BC Hydro’s Bob Gammer says  a damaged insulator in the foothills substation was the culprit  that caused the  electricity to be  cut  around 2:40 this afternoon.  He says  power has since been restored to all but  315 customers, and there is no word on when they will be back on line, nor  can  he pinpoint the area (s) which has  yet to have power restored.

Power was restored at 4 this afternoon,  about 1 hour and 20 minutes after it had  gone off.
