As many as 55,000 customers were in the dark due to an outage in the Fraser Valley Wednesday, but power has been restores for the majority.

BC Hydro spokesperson Simi Heer said in the earlier stages that the problem seemed to be centralized to Chilliwack, Hope, and Abbotsford.
“We have dispatched technicians and electricians to a substation in Chilliwack. For now though, we’ve started switching impacted customers to different circuits to re-route their power supply.”
Crews will continue to work tonight to restore power to the remaining dark areas, and BC Hydro says repairs will continue at 6 a.m. Thursday as well
