“The next one I’ve got has 14 customers impacted. They’ve been out since 6-45 am and that I’ve got a very general Highway 97 location, north of Quesnel. The next one impacts 10 customers. They’ve been off since 5-12am. Crews are assigned and that is the 1600 to 2600 block of Tibbles Road and the 1900 block of Cooper Road. No cause, as it still under investigation.”
