At 4:15 the power went out from Valemount to Dome Creek due to a transmission circuit failure. Approx. 2500 customers were affected. BC Hydro says 1546 customers had power restored around 7:30. Most other people had lights turn on around 9:15pm.
“We are now on town generators and with the IPPs in the valley,” McBride Public Works Foreman Matthew Slaney wrote online at 8pm. “Within minutes of the outage village staff and more than a dozen hydro personnel were working very hard to restore our power. The issue has been resolved and we now have power.”
