BC Hydro said in a message posted Sunday morning that crews continue to make great progress as they work around the clock to restore power to customers affected by the windstorm that started Friday evening. “Additional crews will be arriving today to aid in restoration efforts and we expect to have the majority of customers restored today — with the possible exception of small pockets of customers in areas with significant damage or that have been difficult to access,” it reads.
