Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro crews have restored power to Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Mud Lake, Sheshatshiu and North West River.

A Hydro spokesperson says the electrical feed from Churchill Falls was lost around 2:30 p.m. Labrador time.

Hydro tweeted it had identified the problem with a power line, but repairs were taking longer than expected. Crews originally hoped to have full restoration by 4:30 p.m., but power was restored around 6:15.

While repairs were being done, Hydro initially said it would bring a back-up generator online in Happy Valley-Goose Bay.
