Fort Erie Will Fade to Black Sunday Morning
The whole town of Fort Erie will be black from two to ten Sunday morning.
Canadian Niagara Power Inc. will be repairing a piece of equipment at a sub station in Stevensville.
The work will require taking it apart, inspecting it and putting it back together.
Vice President of Operations Angus Orford says this blackout will affect around 14 thousand customers in the town.
Orford says bad weather would have delayed the blackout until Mother's Day but everything is in place and ready to go.
He also adds that customers with special needs have been notified and taken care of.
Hospitals and the town's hall will run on generators.
