Hydro hopes to have the power back on in every part of the region today, following a snow storm that hit Friday and Saturday morning.

Some customers in the North and South Peace have been without power since late Friday night following a storm that brought over 18 cm of snow in the North Peace and 44 mm of perception in the South Peace.

At the height of the outages over 7,000 customers were sitting in the dark.  As of Sunday morning only 700 customers are still without power and Hydro’s goal is to have all of those outages restored today.

The majority of the power outages are still in the South Peace, the area hardest hit during the storm.  Crews have struggled with the shear volume of outages at one point there were over 100 different outages.  

The largest areas without power are around Kiskatinaw and Farmington with 340 and 200 customers without power.  If you are still without power and you’d like to make sure Hydro knows about your outage, call 1-888-769-3766.  You can also call that number for a update on your outage.

Crews from Kamloops, Fort St. James and Vancouver were brought in to help following the storm.
