Insurance and storm damage

We at Manitoba Hydro are sympathetic to the damage caused by the recent winter storm.

Manitoba Hydro is not legally responsible for damage caused by weather events such as this recent storm. Customers who sustained damage or incurred additional costs as a result of the storm and associated outages (such as food spoilage, damaged electrical appliances, sump pump failure, generator costs, etc.) are encouraged to contact their insurer, broker or insurance agent.

If you have any concerns about the safety or integrity of your home’s electrical panel, electrical wiring or electrical appliances we strongly recommend you contact a certified electrician immediately to have your home or business assessed and to have your concerns addressed. Manitoba Hydro is not equipped to, and does not, provide such services.
