Hydro outages in the East Kootenay have affected over 8,600 customers since Tuesday morning.
This from BC Hydro’s Sally Macdonald, who says they have received 81 trouble calls in Cranbrook, Fernie, Radium, Invermere and surrounding communities since 9 am Tuesday morning as a result of the snow storm hitting the region.
The series of outages had hydro crews working throughout the night to restore services as soon as possible.
Macdonald says there are about 200 customers remaining out of power as of 11 am Wednesday morning. The outages are being reported in Cranbrook, Moyie and the Columbia Valley.
