Hydro One preparing for freezing rain
Hydro One has released the following statement concerning the freezing rain that has been forecast for our listening area.
Significant winter weather is expected to begin in a number of areas across the province on Sunday afternoon. Freezing rain and high winds are expected in central and eastern Ontario.
Hydro One crews are preparing for a number of weather related power outages in affected areas. If outages occur, an estimated time of restoration will be determined for each incident once damage has been assessed. Our outage tools will be updated every 10 minutes as information comes in from the crews on-site. We prioritize emergencies and restoration in a way that brings power back to the largest number of customers in the shortest period of time.
You can access the outage map here.
Be sure to stay clear of any fallen power lines. If you spot a fallen line, keep at least 10 meters back, even if it does not appear to be live. Report it to the police and call Hydro One at 1-800-434-1235. Customers can also sign up in advance for text or email notifications at www.hydroone.com/outages.
