No sooner did FortisBC restore power to over 1,300 Castlegar-area customers than it went out in the Slocan Valley.
The lights went out at about 4:50 this afternoon in all parts of Castlegar except Kinnaird.
There’s no word exactly what caused the outage, but it has been snowing heavily this afternoon.
Then at about 6:50 p.m., about 350 customers between Crescent Valley and Slocan Park were left in the dark. there is no estimated time of repair.
