(THUNDER BAY, ON) – The north side downtown core has been absolutely devastated by a power outage.
Local businesses are left without power, and are considering closing for the remainder of the day if power is not restored soon.
Thunder Bay Hydro tells us that about 1500 to 2000 customers are impacted by the outage, in which they have no idea yet what has caused it.
Hydro crews are en route to restore power, but at the time of this publication, they do not have an estimated time of return for power.
If you know any vulnerable people, such as the elderly or disabled that live in the impacted area, it would be wise to check on them.
Update each other in the comments regarding the status of this power outage, we will be updating this article periodically as well. Keep your cell phones charged, and send in pics of the power outage if you are in the area to firstname.lastname@example.org
