Pole problem causes East Shore outage
This pole was the culprit in an afternoon power outage on the east shore of Kootenay Lake.
Power should be restored to the east shore of Kootenay Lake around 3 p.m. today.
Fortis BC spokesman Sean Beardow says there was a problem with one of the poles.
Beardow says they don’t know what damaged the pole.
