Manitoba Hydro has announced a planned power outage will happen in the Ste. Anne area starting Wednesday morning.

The outage will impact a portion of both the town of Ste. Anne and the Rural Municipality of Ste. Anne.

Within the town, the impacted area is largely south of Provincial Road 207. Though Ste. Anne Hospital falls within this area, we have been told that services at the hospital will not be disrupted. Neither the Ste. Anne Collegiate, nor Ecole Pointe-des-Chenes fall within the outage area.

The outage is expected to start around 10 am and last until about 2 pm.

According to Manitoba Hydro, approximately 737 customers will be affected.
