Power still out north of the Sault

Power Outage

At approximately 1:10 a.m. early this morning about 3,829 Algoma Power customers lost power north of Sault Ste. Marie due to a loss of supply from Hydro One. Areas affected are:

  • Heyden
  • Goulais
  • Batchawana
  • Searchmont (including Ski Resort)

As of 8:30 a.m. Algoma Power has been able to restore power to 825 customers in the Batchawana area. Currently 3004 customers remain without power.

The power outage has also resulted in the cancellation of student transportation services to Mountain View Public School and the school itself is also closed to students.


  1. But hey, the volunteer fire department has opened their building to the public for warmth, water and charging of needed devices. This is awesome for the residents who are needy.
    Sault Ste. Marie has how many fire stations, schools, churches, public buildings, etc.. Did any of them open to the public. Near the end of the storm a warming station was made available. Someone, I wonder who, should have had emergency plans in place before the storm, or at least when the storm started. Poor planning. Poor city representation I’d say.

  2. Rumor has it that a $200,000 transformer blew up and a replacement is three days away.
    We’ll see just how true this is.
