9:45 p.m. UPDATE:

Power has been restored to all customers in Mendenhall and Champagne. The root cause of tonight's outage was a tree that fell on the transmission line just east of Mendenhall.

Thank you again to all customers who were affected by tonight's outage for your patience and understanding this evening. Have a great remainder of the night.

8:15 p.m. UPDATE:

Power has been restored to all customers in and south of Whitehorse.

Yukon Energy continues to work to restore power to Mendenhall and Champagne - communities directly connected to the power line between Aishihik and Whitehorse. Power will be restored to these communities once we find the root cause of the problem on the transmission line and are able to fix it. To customers in these communities, thanks for your ongoing patience and understanding tonight as we continue to work to restore your power as quickly and safely as possible.

Crews have narrowed down the cause of tonight’s outage to be a trip on the high-voltage transmission line between Aishihik and Whitehorse. Crews have been dispatched to patrol the line to find and fix the root cause.

Yukon Energy customers in Mendenhall and Champagne - we are aware you are also without power. Crews have been dispatched.
