Tens of thousands of people living in the Fraser Valley will be going a second night without power due to a winter storm in the region.
BC Hydro crews have been working to restore dozens of outages caused by fallen trees and downed power lines since Thursday. The company said Abbotsford and Mission were some of the hardest hit areas.
Crews continue to make progress on #FraserValley restoration but we’re seeing some tough conditions due to the #bcstorm damage and challenging and unsafe access. Crews will be working through the night but some customers will remain out overnight as repairs continue.
Close to 100,000 customers were without power Friday. That number was reduced to around 37,000 early Saturday morning as crews made headway on repairs.
Police in Abbotsford are urging residents to stay indoors until the weather changes.
Drivers who need to hit the road are advised to drive extremely carefully, watching for black ice and fallen debris.
