A blown feeder cable is responsible for three separate power outages in and around Williams Lake overnight Tuesday.
The first incident, starting at 11:42 p.m. left 2,636 customers without power until around 3:34 a.m. The second left 82 customers without power from 11:58 p.m. until 3:41 a.m. and finally a small one, leaving five customers without power from 11:59 p.m. until 4:03 a.m.
“Crews had to go out and do some internal switching in the system which allowed them to restore power in stages,” said Dave Mosure, BC Hydro spokesperson.
A crew was en route from Vancouver Wednesday to repair the feeder cable.
