At least one person from Windsor has returned to the Rose City after assisting powerless Toronto residents.

Daniel Beveridge is with the Red Cross and went to Toronto to help those without heat.

"They're coming into the [warming] centre, teeth are chattering, they've probably held up as long as they could and they said okay it's time we need to lay down, we need to sleep, we need some place warm," Beveridge said. "We were there to provide that and help as much as we could with food and a place to stay a warm blanket water."

As of Monday morning, about 2,500 people were still without power in Toronto.

Meanwhile, an Enwin Utilities crew  from Windsor continued to help restore power in Toronto through the weekend..

The seven workers, along with other crews from across the country, were working to restore power to all homes across the city.

They brought with them bucket and line trucks to work on power lines and replace poles damaged by the major ice storm.

They were expected to return home late Sunday or sometime Monday.
