Several streets in downtown Winnipeg and West Broadway are currently without power.
"We’ve had an equipment problem at our Edmonton Street substation," Manitoba Hydro spokesman Scott Powell said at about 5 p.m. Sunday. "The outage is affecting approximately 518 customers in the downtown area. Some of these might be apartment blocks, but this is the number of customers."
Streets without power include Furby, Sherbook, Langside, Young, Portage, Donald, Hargrave and Fort. Traffic lights are out on Broadway betwen Main and Edmonton streets. Winnipeg Police Service cadets are at several intersections directing traffic, with other intersections currently operating as four-way stops.
"Our crews are on the scene right now to determine what the issue is," Powell said.
Powell couldn't say when power would be restored.
