by | Jan 11, 2020 | Local News | 0 comments

A significant weather system that began Saturday morning is expected to continue through Sunday bringing regions of the province heavy rain, freezing rain, wet snow and high winds.

Hydro One says some areas, including our listening area could see see outages from accumulation of freezing rain or heavy wet snow. 

The utility says its crews are ready to respond to any 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. Outage tools will be updated every 10 minutes as information comes in from the crews on-site.

Hydro One also warns: 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.
