FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Residents of the Old Fort are still without power, and there is no estimate on when power will be restored.

The power went out at approximately 6 p.m. Saturday night, and B.C. Hydro crews were trying to restore power but were evacuated due to the landslide.  In a post to Facebook on Sunday, the Peace River Regional District said they would not be providing generators to residents of the Old Fort.

Residents can use the water taxi to transport fuel to the Old Fort but will need to organize transportation to the boat launch.
