UPDATED: Close to 6,000 Hydro customers without power


UPDATE: Power has now been restored

Almost 6,000 BC Hydro customers on the city’s west side are without power this afternoon.

A substation fault is being listed as the cause for the power outage that hit the Ospika Boulevard, Tabor Boulevard, Foothills Boulevard, Otway Road, North Nechako areas leaving approximately 5,800 Hydro customers in the dark.

Traffic lights are also out in many areas, so be careful at intersections.

BC Hydro estimates the power will be restored at 3:30 p.m.

    love the way Ospika and Tabor are spelled. Not a local.

      Sorry for the spelling mistakes. Not an excuse, but had to post the update from my phone because … the power was out. I’ll blame auto-correct and a phone keyboard made for people with teeny-tiny fingers. At any rate, the mistakes are corrected. BTW, we got the right number of homes affected … just sayin’
