power outage = power outage

SaskPower spokesman Joel Sherry says the situation in the south of the county has largely been resolved, and efforts are now focused on the northeast of the county, particularly in communities in southwest Melbourne.

Joel Sherry explains that the outages will be caused by the force of wind and ice. The simplifications move and sometimes detach from their structure. This effect prevents SaskPower employees from dealing with the problem.

The breakdowns occurred mostly in rural areas of the county, and crews were unable to travel to some of the affected sites to make repairs, due to poor roads and high winds. Joel Cherry explains that Saskatchewan residents can follow the situation on the SaskPower Twitter account or by visiting the section interruption from the company’s website.

At least 2,542 customers were without power on Tuesday evening, according to SaskPower, which said work to restore power would resume on Wednesday, as soon as it could be done safely.

Sasktel is reporting outages affecting many of its wireless services Wednesday afternoon at Fort à La Corne.

Home telephony will also be affected in Pathlow.

Additionally, telephone and wireless Internet services as well as home telephony in Yellow Creek were affected.

SaskTel spokesperson Greg Jacobs said the provider fears an outage if the power outages persist because spare batteries may run out.
