Planned power outage in Fort Erie

For shift workers living in Fort Erie, it might be best to set a back up alarm Sunday morning.

Canadian Niagara Power says a town wide power outage is planned between the hours of 3:00 am and 3:30 am.

The outage is necessary while upgrades to the transmission system are carried out.

An additional outage is planned for Sunday March 11th at the same time when the upgrade work has been completed.
