Nearly 3,000 customers without power in Aldergrove Monday morning

The cause is still under investigation by BC Hydro

Just under 3,000 customers are without power in Aldergrove Monday morning after heavy winds, according to BC Hydro.

Many people lost power as early as 6:53 a.m. in the areas South of the Trans-Canada Highway, west of Old Yale Road, north of King Road and east of 266B Street.

High winds continued to howl into the morning in Aldergrove with reported speeds up to 26 kilometres per hour at 8:00 a.m.

As of 7:40 a.m. Betty Gilbert Middle School and Shortreed Community Elementary School reported having no power, according to the Langley School District.

The cause of the outage is still under investigation.

It was a similar story on Friday (Jan. 10), when 3,000 customers also lost power in Langley, and 400 in Aldergrove, due in part to a car crash.
