The day after the ice storm. As of 7 a.m., about 3,000 Horizon Utilities customers are still without power, and Hydro One is reporting large pockets of Flamborough with no power. CBC Hamilton will keep you up to date throughout the day.
A of 7 a.m., 621 customers east of Upper Kenilworth and north of Mohawk are without power – that's the largest area without power for Horizon. All of Lynden is also without power. That's another 200 customers.
In Flamborough, Carlisle and Freelton, there are another roughly 2,000 Hydro One customers without power at 7 a.m.
Service restoration time is to be determined, according to Horizon.
If you are without power, the city of Hamilton has opened recreation centres in affected areas as warming stations.
Community warming centres
The city has opened a series of community centres to residents who have lost power. City staff will be present at these locations:
Dundas Lions Memorial Community Centre — 10 Market St. S, Dundas (HSR bus route #5 West)
Stoney Creek Recreation Centre — 45 King St. W, Stoney Creek (HSR bus route #5 East)
Huntington Park Recreation Centre — 87 Brentwood Dr., Hamilton (HSR bus route #22)
All daycares, school and administrative buildings operated by the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board are closed today.
On the highways, a serious accident on the QEW Toronto-bound at Centennial Parkway has left all lanes closed. OPP said the lanes could reopen in about an hour after the scene is cleared. Tow trucks are on scene.
GO Transit is operating on a Winter Storm schedule. That means reduced service and some possible last-minute changes. Before you leave this morning, check gotransit.com for any delays. As of 8 a.m., Hamilton buses are running without delay. A few earlier train Toronto-bound train trips were delayed, but GO reports trains are on schedule now.
In town, traffic is light right now.
The temperature is sitting at zero degrees right now and is expected to fall to -3 C later this morning.
This evening, there's a 40 per cent chance of flurries with a low of -10 C overnight.
Tuesday, more flurries and a high of -8 C.
Because the temperature is dropping, that means all the ice accumulated over the weekend won't get a chance to melt. If we do see those flurries, be careful. The ice will stay underneath.
