About 1400 people are without power in River Park South after a contractor struck a feeder line.
Manitoba Hydro says 1250 of those customers should be back online very soon.
The area affected is bounded by Dakota to the east, Paddington to the west, Burland to the north and the south Perimeter.
A spokesperson tells 680 CJOB, restoration time is hard to predict, but it will be at least 2 o’clock Friday before the lights are turned back on.
However, the rest could be in the dark for another six to ten hours as crews repair the damage.
Hydro is still determining who will be without power for an extended period of time.
