NewsPower Outage Knocks Out Most Of Northern Ontario SHARE ON: Nick Birnie, contributor, Thursday, Aug. 10th, 2017A power outage left Kapuskasing and a majority of Northern Ontario in the dark this afternoon. Around 1:40pm power was lost to over 2,250 Hydro One and Northern Ontario Wires customers in Kapuskasing, as well as to customers from Timmins all the way through to North Bay. Hydro One has alerted us here at Moose news that the issue seemed to be stemming from one of their transmitters. Power was fully restored to all customers in the Kapuskasing and surrounding area by roughly 4:10pm. At this time the cause of the outage is still unknown, for further details you can contact Hydro One.
