Algoma Power work crews are continuing to identify and restore power to customers in East Algoma areas due to yesterday’s storm. Freezing rain followed by wet heavy snow accumulated on trees resulting in contacts with power lines.
Hazardous road conditions dramatically slowed repair crew responses, with road crews working through the night to clear and sand area roadways.
API took to Twitter to caution the public about staying clear of downed power lines and report incidents.
A winter storm has arrived-API reminds the public to be cautious & aware that: Downed wires should always be considered energized or “live”, and extremely dangerous. Stay clear & report to 1-844-901-9473.
