Some Fort Saskatchewan residents went hours without power.
Around 1:10 p.m. on Monday (Jan.17), an oversized load caught a powerline on Sherridon Drive near 99 Avenue. Several power poles and wires were pulled down from the force of the collision.
The Fort Saskatchewan Fire Department, Fort Saskatchewan RCMP and municipal enforcement had the area blocked off by Our Lady of the Angels Catholic School.
No injuries have been reported.
According to FortisAlberta, at least 360 customers were affected.
Some of the areas that went without power were downtown and neighbourhoods such as Sherridon and Pineview. Four schools were also impacted.
Power has since been restored.
