Outages hit district

Staff

A total of 405 Hydro One customers in an area from Mine Centre to east of Flanders lost power this morning.
Hydro One said the cause of the outage was under investigation.
The crew needs a helicopter to patrol the area but it was unable to fly earlier today due to the wintry weather.
As such, it was unknown when power would be restored.
Meanwhile, more than 40 Hydro One customers living in the Frog Creek area briefly lost power this morning due to a blown fuse in a transformer.
It went out between 5 and 5:30 a.m. but was back on by about 6:30 a.m.
