BC Hydro expects to restore power to majority of customers





BC Hydro lists almost 900 customers across Greater Victoria, the Southern Gulf Islands and parts of mid-Vancouver Island without power as of Sunday morning.

Galiano Island (490) and Ganges on Saltspring Island (137) record the highest number of customers without power as of the latest available updates.

Parts of Greater Victoria also remain without power, including Central Saanich (44), as well as the Duncan (49) and North Cowichan (41) area.

BC Hydro said in a message posted Sunday morning that crews continue to make great progress as they work around-the-clock to restore power to customers affected by the windstorm that started Friday evening. “Additional crews will be arriving today to aid in restoration efforts and we expect to have the majority of customers restored today — with the possible exception of small pockets of customers in areas with significant damage or that have been difficult to access,” it reads.
