UPDATED: Power still out on Johnstone Rd. to Six Mile

A windstorm blew trees onto power lines overnight.

Last night the city and the surrounding areas experienced a significant wind storm resulting in multiple trees taking power lines down.

Nelson Hydro crews and two contractor crews are working to restore power as soon as possible.

The areas that are currently without power include:

Johnstone Road to the east end of Six Mile, where two power structures carrying two main lines were damaged by trees. Power is expected to be restored by early evening.

Outages in Grohman Creek and Sproule Creek have been restored.

The Nelson Hydro outage information line number is 1-877-324-9376
