It's been recently confirmed power is back on in Weyburn and Estevan, however, the towns of Halbrite, Midale, Stoughton, Carlyle, Oxbox, Redvers, Alameda, Carnduff, Gainsborough, Carievale and Alida are still without power. There is currently no estimated time for the power to come back on. Power has turned back on in Pangman, Trossachs and Radville. 

Crews continue to work on repairs in central Saskatchewan, with outages still affecting Rosthern, Aberdeen and Wakaw.

12:43 p.m.

Power has been restored for the most part in Regina and other areas in the southeast corner. However, some regions and communities are still without power at this time. 

Outages have stretched as far north as Duck Lake and Porcupine Plain, while also reaching as far west as Mossbank and Coronach. Communities near the Manitoba border were also affected this morning and there is still no confirmation power has been restored to Moosomin, Carnduff or Esterhazy. 

10:59 a.m.

The power has been restored to downtown Weyburn but is still out in some parts of the city. As well, much of the province remains without power this hour. SaskPower is advising it could be an extended period of time before the lights are on across much of the province.

Communities reporting power outages include Estevan, Assiniboia, Moose Jaw, Radville, Griffin, Stoughton, Melville, Rosthern, Swift Current, Regina and more.

10:48 a.m.

The power has been restored in parts of Weyburn. There is no word as to the status of the power in other parts of the province at this time.

9:53 a.m.

There are now reports of the outage being as widespread across the southern part of the province to include Swift Current, Herbert and Gull Lake.

SaskPower is swamped with calls reporting the outages to the point they are unable to keep up in terms of updates through their outage map on their website.

9:19 a.m.

A wide portion of Saskatchewan is without power this morning. The outages began around 8:30 a.m. in the Humboldt area, and have spread to other regions of the province. Fillmore, Stoughton, Creelman, Arcola, Estevan and other communities in the southeast lost power around 8:47 a.m. and Weyburn and area lost power just before 9:00 a.m.

SaskPower then reported the majority of the city of Regina lost power at 9:03 a.m.

There is no word at this time as to the cause of the outages, which encompasses much of the province from Rosthern, south. It is speculated they may be weather related due to the amount of frost and ice build up on power lines after the weather patterns of the past week.

We will continue to bring you information as it becomes available.
