WINNIPEG — Manitoba Hydro said on Thursday that it could take a number of days before it can restore power to four First Nations, which have been evacuated due to smoke and flames from wildfires.
According to Manitoba Hydro, its staff conducted a helicopter patrol late on Wednesday and found three fire-damaged poles between Loon Straits and Bloodvein.
The Crown corporation said it is planning out how to access the area safely, noting that it will take several days to repair before the power is restored. According to Manitoba Hydro’s outage map, it estimates power will be back by 4:30 p.m. on July 27.
