Crews From P.G. Helping to Restore Power in Lower Mainland
Prince George, B.C. – Crews from Prince George are among the more than 400 people working to restore power to those hit by a severe windstorm on Saturday.
The storm knocked out power to more than half a million customers in the Lower Mainland, making it one of the largest single-day storm events in B.C. Hydro’s history.
Crews have restored electricity to more than 300 thousand customers, but there are still another 180 thousand who are waiting for service.
There are more than 250 power line workers on the job, including teams from Prince George, Kamloops, Smithers, Terrace, Vernon and Vancouver Island.
