Manitoba Hydro customers in the Oakburn area will be without power for approximately four hours today as the utility replaces a number of poles damaged by a storm that blew through the area on Sunday.

About 1,200 customers served by the Oakburn substation will have their power shut off for four hours, starting at 11 a.m., as Manitoba Hydro construction crews install the new poles and transfer all of the overhead cables from the damaged poles to the new ones.

Specific areas that will be affected by this outage include the town of Oakburn itself, rural areas surrounding the town, and rural areas north of Oakburn towards Rossburn and Lake Audy.

Manitoba Hydro has information on how to prepare for a power outage, online at www.hydro.mb.ca/customer_services/emergency_information/electrical/prepare_for_outage.shtml.
