Power outage

Power was restored to more than 2,000 Salmon Arm hydro customers as of 6:50 a.m., Friday, Oct. 14.

BC Hydro reports outages in Salmon Arm, Blind Bay and Eagle Bay that began at approximately 4:30 a.m. Friday morning, Oct. 14.

In Salmon Arm the outage includes an area north of 12th Ave SE, south of Lakeshore Road, west of 40th Street and, East of 30th Street SE. This affects much of the downtown areas as well as residential neighbourhoods along portions of the waterfront, Okanagan Ave and into the Hlllcrest area.

The cause of the outage has not been confirmed, although there were high winds and rain through the night, which may have contributed to the outages.

The outage created problems for some businesses including operations like the Shuswap Pie Company, who were unable to get started with the morning baking, and EZ Rock Radio, which was off the air.

Currently, about 1,145 BC Hydro customers are still without power in an area along the east Squilax-Anglemont Road.

Another outage affecting approximately 54 residences in the 6500 to 6700 block of Eagle Bay Road has also been fixed.
