BC Hydro crews are busy restoring power across the north as strong winds are expected to continue until after noon.
Power is still out for a couple hundred in the Terrace and outlying areas, 190 in Prince Rupert, 250 in Smithers and outlying areas, 1,500 in Burns Lake, all 2,400 in Fort St, James, 650 in Vanderhoof, and 1,400 Prince George.
Bob Gammer is the Northern Community Relations Manager for BC Hydro.
He adds that people should not take matters into their own hands; for example if they see a tree resting on a power line, or a wire on the ground.
He says stay back 10 metres and make a good note of the location and contact BC Hydro and let their crews take care of it.
The number to call at BC Hydro is: 1-888-769-3766.
