Manitoba Hydro will cut power to parts of the Exchange District and East Kildonan on Thursday, August 25.

Exchange District
The first outage will affect customers from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. from Rupert Avenue south to Lombard Avenue and Main Street east to Bertha Street. About 260 customers will be affected.

East Kildonan
The second outage will affect customers from 6 a.m. to 6:15 a.m. from Leighton Avenue south to Kimberly Avenue and from Roch Street west to Kildonan Drive. About 1,100 customers will be affected.
