Hundreds without power in Maple Ridge Sunday

Temperatures expected to plummet to -12 C tonight

More than 300 people were without power in Maple Ridge Sunday morning after snow blanketed the region with more still to come.

As of 9:30 a.m. there were seven outages in the area. The largest one was from the Ruskin area of Maple Ridge into Mission that saw 419 with no power. B.C. Hydro said they expect to have power restored to that area at about 10:45 a.m. Sunday morning and blamed trees across the power lines for the outage.
