Thousands of Hydro One customers are going to be without power again overnight.
The utility says all available crews are working to get the lights back on as soon possible. However, Friday’s storms, which included winds up to 100 km/h and a reported tornado in the Ottawa region, wreaked havoc on the system.
Hydro One says about 29,540 customers in the central region won’t have their power turned back on tonight.
The following number of customers served by these Op Centres will remain without power overnight:
Minden – 3,000
Bracebridge – 7,200
Orillia – 300
Owen Sound – 20
Parry Sound – 8,000
