Over 100 customers affected across the two cities

A windy morning has lead to a handful of power outages in Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows today.

“There are a few scattered outages in the Maple Ridge [area] caused by wind – trees and branches falling on lines etc,” a representative from BC Hydro said.

“The largest outage in the area is due to a tree making contact with wires.”

Estimated restoration time on that is 2:30 p.m.

A small Pitt Meadows outage is affecting less than five customers in the 16600 – 16700 block of Middleton Rd.
