The entire community of Tumbler Ridge has lost power. 

BC Hydro says over 1,700 customers are without power and the community lost power at around 5:30pm Wednesday.  BC Hydro’s David Conway says the main problem is the outage occured at a substation in a remote area that crews cannot access until daylight.  The substation is about 20 minutes outside of Chetwynd and BC Hydro will have crews on scene at first light Thursday.

Once crews are able to visit the substation, they will have a better estimate as to when power will be restored.  At the moment, Hydro estimates power could be restored by 12pm Thursday but David stresses they won’t know an acurate time until crews are able to access the substation.
