Roughly 1,500 people in East Sooke were without power Friday morning after a tree fell across some wires.
The power went out just before 6 a.m. and BC Hydro crews are now on scene. They’ve already restored power to more than half the homes and businesses in the area.
By 8:30 a.m. the number of customers affected was down to 565, and mostly confined to southwest of Sooke Road and east of Sea Lion Way.
