Maritime Electric, P.E.I.’s power utility, reported about 790 customers were without power in the Kensington, Darnley and Malpeque areas after a snow plow hit a pole.

The power outage lasted a few hours.

In another Island plow incident, transportation crews had to close a portion of the highway between Bloomfield and Elmsdale Monday in order to pull a plow out of the ditch.

The plow had gone off the road over the weekend.

It took four hours to get the equipment out.
