There have been some cold, dark nights for some people in East Central Alberta recently.
 
"We are having a frost event and and our crews continue to work in these areas that are affected," explained Sylvia Adams of ATCO Electric. "Most outages this morning remain in (the) Consort and Oyen areas at this time."
 
"That (total) area I include from the Three Hills and Drumheller area out through the east, to our Consort and Oyen areas," she added.
 
Adams maintains this is not unusual for this time of year as there is still a lot of moisture in the air as temperatures cool.
 
"At times it's the frost building on the lines and (it) does weigh them down and so on," she outlined. "Another situation can be when the temperature or the wind picks up it can cause other difficulties."
 
Adams assured Drum FM that crews are getting to the affected customers as they can and she asks that people be patient.
 
If you have a power outage, contact ATCO Electric's 24 hour Emergency Power Repair line at 1-800-668-5506.
