Power restored to Fort St. John-Taylor jurisdiction

BC Hydro’s website now lists no power outages in the Northern Region, suggesting the one in this area this morning is over.

Earlier Hydro confirmed 12 hundred and 76 customers lost service shortly after 4.30 this morning, and it put the impact area, north of Johnstone Road, and east of Old Fort LP.


Originally, it gave 7.30 as the estimated service restoration time, but then backed it up to nine o’clock.

However, it’s believed the repair work, resulting from a tree, which had fallen across power lines, was actually completed before 8.30.
