News Lights that illuminate and direct traffic go out briefly SHARE ON: Bob McIntyre, staff Wednesday, Mar. 13th, 2019 Anything that works on electricity in downtown Timmins had an unexpected break late this morning. Electricity went out to more than 32-hundred Hydro One customers at exactly 10:44. It was back on by 10:57. The utility says the culprit was a broken cross-arm on a pole, no doubt caused by ice build-up.
