A tree down across wires was to blame for a hydro outage affecting 2,145 customers in the Valley last Friday morning. The juice stopped flowing just after 6:30 a.m.

Most customers north of Indian Road, west of Meadow Park Road and east of North Road were affected for two hours or less. Later that evening, at about 7:50 p.m. birds coming into contact with wires were to blame for a small outage in the 4300-block of Neel Road. Power was restored to the less than five homes involved by 9:20 p.m.
