WINNIPEG — Nearly 21,000 Manitoba homes and businesses remained without power early Monday in the wake of a snowstorm that the province’s Crown energy utility said had left an unprecedented amount of damage to transmission lines, towers and more, and will take days to repair.
“In some areas, we have more lines and poles down than standing,” Manitoba Hydro chief executive officer Jay Grewal said Sunday. “Our crews are out there working hard, 16 hours a day, doing their best to restore the power.”
Premier Brian Pallister declared a state of emergency early Sunday morning.
