Manitoba Hydro says crews continue to work on outage
Manitoba Hydro says an underground fault is to blame for a power outage that left thousands of customers without power in south Winnipeg Saturday.
A tweet from the power company sent shortly after 3 p.m. Saturday said as many as 5,000 were without power in St. Vital and Southdale.
Most were back within 45 minutes, and by 5 p.m. Manitoba Hydro said the power should be back on for everyone affected by the outage.
UPDATE: Crews suspect an underground fault. New ETR is 5:30 p.m.—@manitobahydro
