Yesterday’s wind storm caused a number of power outages across Southern British Columbia. The majority of Nelson Hydro customers had power restored in short order, however, power remains out on Svoboda Road, the Grohman and Granite Road areas, and pockets in Blewett including Carlson, Marello and Malina, Clayton and Cazakoff roads.  There are still downed trees, power poles and electrical lines in many areas.  
Nelson Hydro and contract crews are working on priority power lines and it is anticipated power will be restored to most remaining customers by 2:00pm today. 
Nelson Hydro thanks you for your patience as we work to restore power after this significant wind event.
