Downed powerline closes Kitamaat Village rd and knocks out power to nearby residents

The power first went off at 4:05 p.m.

BC Hydro crews are on scene after a tree went down across some power lines.

The line is down on Kitimat Village road and the road is currently closed. People that need to get past the road closure can use Minette Bay Rd.

The estimated time for the power to be back on is 7:30 p.m., however, no time for the road to reopen has been announced.
