POWER OUTAGE UPDATEOctober 17, 20173:30pmThe power is out in multiple areas of Nelson and the North Shore due to a wind storm event.The line dept is working on restoring power to the large blocks of customers. There are multiple points of tree impact to power lines so the full extent of damage is not yet known and we expect by around 5:00pm we will have better clarity on the amount of restoration effort required. Once the large blocks of customers have power restored there will likley still be pockets of customers out of power due to localized tree issues and it will probably take several hours to repair all of these locations.
