A number of power outages have been reported in and around Morden Friday morning. Manitoba Hydro Media Relations Officer Bruce Owen says nearly 500 customers were without power from 11:40 p.m last night to about 3:30 a.m this morning.
Approximately 20 rural customers were also without service until 5:00 a.m this morning.
Owen notes an underground cable fault led to the outages.
He adds repairs continue this morning which required an outage to about 30 customers on Fairway Dr. in Morden and rural residents until 10 a.m. The outage is needed so crews can safely do the full repairs.
