Currently, there are two outages to report. The biggest one impacts much of East Sooke.
According to BC Hydro, there is a tree down across the wires in an area east of West Coast Road and west of La Bonne Road. Crews have been assigned, and 1457 customers are affected. There is currently no estimate for a return to power.
The second outage is in Saseenos. Again, it is caused by a tree down across the wires.
The area impacted is west of Goodridge, north of Woodcock, and east of Lazzar. Crews are enroute, and 756 customers are affacted. Again, there is no estimate for a return to power.
Depending on the power status at SPN headquarters, we may or may not report on all outages. Please visit SPN Weather and Traffic for live streaming information; those pages are constantly updating, even when we are not.
In the meanwhile, be ready for a possible outage (even if Sooke escapes the biggest wind, a transformer can go down that impacts Sooke), and hunker down for rain.
