"Load is expected to be higher again during the 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. peak this evening. We are monitoring the system closely, but there’s potential for rotating outages tonight as system load grows."

Residents in Green Bay South will be without power starting 6:30pm this eveing. Port Anson, Pilleys Island, Roberts Arm, Springdale Junction and South Brook will be without power from 6:30pm - 7:00pm.

Hydro crews are continuing to work towards safely restoring system generation.
