Power lines collapsing province-wide under the weight of frost and snow.
Outages are impacting most of the City of Regina as well as other communities in the province.
According to their website, SaskPower has suffered” significant” issues because of frost over the past few days.
“This morning, power units at Boundary Dam, Shand and Poplar River Power Stations tripped off and we lost generation. We are bringing those units back on line as quickly and safely as possible.”
“The frost is causing lines to fall and sag; please be safe and stay at least 10 meters away. Do not try to remove frost from the lines yourself. Lines that look damaged can still be live.”
This should be a lot of fun. (Not.) Tonight it’s supposed to go down to -11.7°C (11°F) in Regina.
