Approximately 900 customers affected

Nova Scotia Power says around 900 customers in the eastern part of the province were still without electricity as a result of last week's snowstorm. Some of those customers may not have power restored until 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

A spokeswoman for Nova Scotia Power says crews have been working around the clock to get electricity restored.

As of 10:58 p.m. Monday night 2,322 customers in the Digby area were without power due to a transmission interruption. Nova Scotia Power is investigating the cause and is hoping to have electricity restored by midnight.

Approximately 67,000 Nova Scotia Power customers lost power at the peak of last week's storm as snow and ice covered trees made contact with power lines, downing lines and breaking poles.
