UPDATE: Power has been restored in the Morden and RM of Stanley area.

Approximately 450 customers in and around Morden are without power this evening according to Manitoba Hydro.

With temperatures falling to -33 overnight, and windchill values of -45, a local hotel has offered to put up effected residents at cost for the night.
