The messy weather in the Maritimes left people without power and kept emergency crews busy.

By midday Sunday, thousands of residences across the Maritimes did not have power. By late afternoon, power had mostly been restored.

In Nova Scotia, the Mayflower Mall in Sydney closed due to a power outage.

In New Brunswick, the outages were minimal. As of late Sunday afternoon, just over 40 households in Fredericton and Sussex did not have electricity, said NB Power.

In Nova Scotia and P.E.I., there were no outages late in the afternoon.
