Downtown Vancouver Blackout


canadianpress.google.com

VANCOUVER — Residents and businesses in several skyscrapers in downtown Vancouver were preparing to stay in the dark until at least Tuesday night as a massive blackout continued to leave much of the city's core without power.

B.C. Hydro crews continued to repair the damage caused by a circuit fire Monday morning in a downtown underground vault.

The Crown corporation's website suggested electricity wouldn't be restored to most areas until 11 p.m. on Tuesday.

Kamloops also had a power outage involving fire ...

From the main news story:
"B.C. Hydro's woes continued Tuesday in another city after a failed circuit breaker caused an explosion at a Kamloops substation, knocking out power to most of that Interior city at around 7:30 a.m.

"There was actually a small fire," said Hydro official Gene Bryant in Kamloops."
