Power Restored at YXS
Prince George, B.C. – Officials at the Prince George airport say power has now been restored at the facility.
The wet, heavy snowfall yesterday had caused a power outage last night and, while back-up power was available in the terminal, the back-up generator for the airfield did not kick in resulting in unsafe conditions for landings and take-offs.
Communications spokesperson Lindsay Cotter says airport electricians and B.C. Hydro personnel managed to restore power late last night. She says passengers flying out of YXS this morning should contact their airline for the latest information about their travel details.
