It is not expected that power will be completely restored to communities north of Buffalo Narrows until Saturday.
That’s after a plow wind pummeled its way through the area late Thursday night.
SaskPower spokesperson, Leanne Persicke, says the outage area includes Dillon, La Loche, Turnor Lake, Black Point, Clearwater River and Garson Lake areas.
Multiple crews are working on locating what is estimated to be about 50 points where there has been damage to a line or the poles are down.
Persicke says it’s a large project made even more challenging because it some cases the crews are having to maneuver around downed trees.
About 23-hundred customers have been affected by the outages.
