Heavy winds and lightning have resulted in several power outages throughout the city with extensive damage to our infrastructure. We are currently experiencing multiple outages affecting more than 110,000 customers. The situation remains complex.
Crews are working diligently to ensure public safety and restore power as soon as possible. Restoration is expected to extend across multiple days. Power will be restored initially to large scale outages, followed by smaller ones, keeping safety as the number one priority.
If you see a downed power line, stay at least 10 meters (the length of a school bus) away from the wires and from any objects that are in contact with the lines.
Crews continue to repair equipment and restore power to customers across the city. If you are experiencing an outage, please call 613-738-0188.
