Power out at Lakelse Lake

One person reported seeing a flash in the sky around the airport

  • Dec. 23, 2011 8:00 a.m.

POWER IS still out this morning in the area stretching south of the Northwest Regional Airport to the residential areas of Lakelse Lake.

BC Hydro is checking on the reasons for the outage and there is no current indication of when power might be restored.

Reports said the power at the lake went out around supper time, came on briefly at around 8:30 pm and then went out again.

One person reported seeing a flash in the sky around the airport.

Airport general manager Carman Hendry said its power went out just before 4 am.

[But] we have a [diesel] generator and everything that we need is operational,” he said of the facility’s runway lights, other lights and navigational systems.

That means people either leaving or arriving for Christmas won’t be affected.

One facility at the airport is affected, however. The kitchen at the restaurant does not have power, said Hendry.
