Residents in Nain had their power restored by 8 p.m. on Saturday after an unscheduled power outage that started at 8 a.m. that day.

A spokesperson for NL Hydro said there was a problem with one of the units at the diesel generating station.

Hydro crews continue to work on permanent repair to the unit, but temporary repairs are currently able to maintain power for customers in the community.

Residents in Nain have already had to adjust to reduced power since late in December, when one of three units suffered an engine failure.
