The weekend weather also played a part in a series of local area power outages, although BC Hydro indicates in each of them, the number of impacted customers was less than ten.

The longest outage, blamed on adverse weather, was in an area North of Hudson’s Hope and it began about 4pm Friday afternoon.

Hydro’s last update, late yesterday afternoon, indicated power would be restored early this morning, to rural customers along both sides of Highway 29.

Another outage, Hydro said was due to a tree down across power lines, was reported from about 9:15 Saturday morning to 6pm last night on the South Moberly road.

There were two disruptions, from roughly from 7pm to to 11pm last night in Dawson Creek and Rolla…and at least one of those was again due to a tree down across Hydro wires.
