Outage knocks out power for 1,400 Transcona customers
Manitoba Hydro expects the power back on around 12:30 p.m.
About 1,400 Transcona customers found themselves without power Sunday morning.
Manitoba Hydro confirmed the outage, saying 1,436 customers were without service in north-east Winnipeg, including parts of Ravelston Avenue West, Almey Avenue, Margaret Swann Drive, Peguis Street and more.
At about 9 a.m., service was restored to most customers, said Manitoba Hydro.
However, some customers on Ravelston and Peguis Street would be without power until about 1 p.m., they said.
Once equipment is fixed, the power will come back on, they said.
