Storm Knocks Out Power for Several Areas

Posted by Kyle Brookings on Saturday, December 16, 2017

The Avalon was pounded by a blizzard on Saturday that knocked out power in multiple areas.

As of this morning there are still power outages on Bell Island and in Broad Cove and Blackhead.

Severe weather conditions caused overhead line damage.

Power should be restored by 9:00 am on Bell Island and 10:00 am in Broad Cove and Blackhead.

Blizzard conditions and poor road conditions made it difficult for crews to get around. Newfoundland Power thanks customers for their patience as they work to safely restore power.
