Problem with underground cable caused outage

If you live in the area of Freshwater Road or Pennywell Road in St. John’s, you may be curious why your power was out this morning. According to Newfoundland Power spokesperson Michelle Coughlin, the outage was caused by a problem with an underground cable. Luckily crews got power back on for those affected by around 8:45am. A few cold showers may have been had this morning, but at least now your pipes won’t freeze while you’re at work.
