Thousands Wihout Power in the Province

About five thousand NB Power customers were without electricity last night thanks to snow and rain in the Northern part of the province. Spokesperson, Marianne Limpert says snow and rain weighed down branches onto power lines and several vehicle crashes damaged poles.

Crews have been working throughout the night to restore power but there are still 42 separate outages in the Miramichi area, affecting moer than 12 hundred customers. Limpert says power should be back up by supper time.
