Power Outage Advisory – LaPoile to remain off overnight

Update ( Dec 19): Power was restored at 2:30 pm.

Dec 18

Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro (Hydro) is advising the customers in LaPoile that power will remain off overnight.  Unfortunately, it is unsafe for a helicopter to fly and patrol the line tonight.

It is suspected that there is damage on the line from recent weather (I.e. There could be a fallen tree on the line).

The pilot is on standby and we will survey the weather at first light and get the helicopter out as soon as it is safe.

Please be safe, check on family and friends, and visit our website and social media sites for updates.
