Power is out in some areas of the Collicutt Centre after a vehicle crashed into an outside transformer around 10 a.m. this morning.

Most programs are still running as normal, including the day camp program.

Public swim and any scheduled aquatic or arena activities, including swimming lessons, are cancelled until power is restored.

Barb McKee, the centre’s supervisor, said the power is partially out in areas such as the pool, arenas and ventilation and air conditioning systems.

Crews from the city’s Electric, Light and Power Department are fixing the problem.

Power is expected to be restored within a few hours.
