In the evening of Saturday October 11th there was an underground utility fire in Downtown Calgary’s West End. This fire has caused major damage to the utility infrastructure in that area and as a result there has been no power to a small area of Calgary’s Downtown Core. Please see the attached map for the exact location of the power outage.
Updated Thursday, Oct 16th @8:40am: Power has been restored to the area. The Mewata Armoury info centre is still open from 9 am – 9 pm to provide info & support for residents returning home.
For exact details please refer to the City of Calgary Power Outage Resource Webpage.
