Power restored in Halifax's Westmount subdivision

Power was knocked out around for about two hours after Nova Scotia Power's overhead equipment was damaged.

Power was restored to all customers shortly after 1 p.m.

The power is back on Nova Scotia Power customers living in and around Halifax's Westmount subdivision. 

At one point this morning 1,985 customers were without electricity, but shortly after 1 p.m. the electricity was back on. 

The utility said the outage was caused after a power line snapped near Westmount Elementary School.
