Weather woes keep thousands powerless in Ontario

TORONTO – More than 36,000 homes in Ontario remained without power Monday following a bout with snow and high winds over the weekend.

Hydro One crews, however, had restored service to about 120,000 residences since late Saturday night.

About 20,000 customers in Penetanguishene and Bracebridge remained without power on Monday morning, while some areas of Barrie, Orillia, Huntsville and Minden are also in the dark.

Poor weather in some areas continues to wreak havoc as repair crews try to restore the lines.

Crews are reporting numerous downed poles and trees that have fallen onto power lines.

Hydro One said in a news release that some of the more remote areas may be without power until later this week.
