One incident to happen locally within the Peace Region was in Dawson Creek where beavers were busy harvesting timber for a dam which caused trees to fall on powerlines, creating a power outage for a number of hydro customers.
If you happen to come across a downed powerline, B.C. Hydro is reminding you to stay back at least 10 metres and report it to 9-1-1.
