Quebec gets help to restore power
Nov 2, 2013 / 9:22 am
Quebec's power utility is asking for help from crews in neighbouring Vermont and New Brunswick to help restore power after heavy winds swept through the province on Friday.
Hydro-Quebec says 120,000 customers are still without electricity in the province today, compared with 350,000 on Friday.
The Laurentian Mountains, the Monteregie region, and the Montreal area were the hardest hit, where strong gusts brought down trees and sent chunks of debris flying.
In Ontario, the central and eastern parts of the province were the hardest hit.
Hydro One says 46,000 customers are still without power today, down from 126,000 on Friday.
The utility says it expects the work to continue through the weekend.
