Thank you to hydro crews for working extra long hours to get our community reenergized and power back on!
Due to hotels being full in Winnipeg, the new evacuee arrivals are being put up at the Winnipeg Convention Centre until further notice as other hotels maybe declare vacancies.
Power to the main 66kv lines are elected to be restored today to service and therefore the South and Central community should have power sometime today.
All emergency calls related to the weather situation such as power outages, no heat, and absolute emergency’s can call the Peguis Central School at (204) 645-2164 ext.142 or Dean Cochrane at (204) 308-0016.
The weather system we are experiencing is expected to improve Saturday. We advise community members to restrict travelling unless absolutely necessary. Snow removal is in progress on cross roads as the snow is drifting considerably. Residential driveways, where power outages have occurred, are also being plowed so wellbeing checks can happen. The Peguis Community Hall has been identified as an Emergency Centre for the community if they are experiencing power outages for lengthy amounts of time.
Peguis Emergency Operations Centre will continue to check on Elders in the community to ensure generators are ready in case of power outages. All extra efforts are being made to ensure community safety is in collaboration with Peguis Fire Chief Dean Cochrane.
If you see a downed power line, do not approach or attempt drive over. Report any downed power lines to Dean Cochrane and Manitoba Hydro.
Travel to Winnipeg is not advised, as the road conditions are worse South of community.
