Power Expected To Be Restored By Friday Morning If Not Sooner

Power crews are trying to fix 16 remaining outages in the Rothesay Region, including the Kingston Peninsula affecting just 77 customers. 

Most of those without power are in Bayswater and there's no indication when electricity there will be restored. The latest estimate from NB Power is by early Friday morning, if not sooner.

There are still 19 outages in the St Stephen region affecting 126 customers with most back on line by late tonight but for some others, it might not be until early Friday morning.

There are 5 outages in the Sussex area, mostly in Havelock and Canaan Forks, affecting 318 customers. There is no estimate on when power will be restored.

Current Power Outages

 In the Rothesay region, there are currently 340 customers without power and 181 customers in the St. Stephen region.

 Due to the extreme cold weather conditions, NB Power is asking the public to check up on anyone you suspect doesn't have power and make sure they are safe.
