SaskPower says an underground line is to blame for a widespread outage in Regina Monday afternoon.
The outage was first reported around 3 p.m. and primarily affected areas in the city’s north end.
It lasted several hours and impacted 3,500 customers.
“Different customers were restored at different times just based on the work being done,” said Heather Johnson, a spokesperson for SaskPower, onTuesday.
Johnson explained the outage happened after an underground cable was tripped, which is often caused by the ground shifting. She said no one came in contact with the line.
According to SaskPower, the areas of Coronation Park, Coventry Place, Regent Park and Rosemont had power restored by 5:30 p.m. Some people in North Central were without power for another hour after that.
“Everyone had their power back on by about 6:30 pm,” Johnson said.
