The power is back on for the last neighbourhood in Hamilton and St. Catharines that was in the dark Monday morning after a wind storm created a busy Sunday afternoon and overnight for utilities crews. 

Lights were out Monday morning on Lake Avenue Drive from Randall Avenue to King Street East, but Alecta Utilities said by 11:20 a.m., power was restored.

Lake Avenue Drive is where a massive tree fell Sunday, blocking the road. 

Sudden high winds downed trees and poles around 3 p.m. Sunday, affecting hydro across the GTA and Hamilton. At its height, more than 10,500 households in Hamilton and St. Catharines were without power, according to Alectra Utilities.

About 2,000 households still didn't have power by 8:30 p.m. Sunday, but the utility appears to have restored power to all but those 68 households in Stoney Creek.
