Friday power outage impacts thousands in Campbell River

It’s a dark and dreary day in Campbell River, with a Friday morning power outage affecting thousands across town.

According to BC Hydro, more than 3,500 of its customers are currently without power in areas south of 9th Ave., with a tree down across wires to blame.

The power went out just before 9:50 am, but BC Hydro says crews are now on site. The power’s expected to come back around 10:30 am.

More updates will be posted here.

Meanwhile, it’s another classic day of west coast weather.
