How how come bellot rd, firetrail has no power. We’ve been out from 12AM and still no power.

you’ve outlined the areas that was shut down due to trees and winds, Bellot and Firetrail Rd. was not included in that, so how is it that we are still without power? it’s now 1:00 pm in the afternoon. How much longer do we have to endure this?
