Thousands of Toronto Hydro customers in the city's west end were in the dark for more than two hours Sunday evening, the company said.

The company said a power outage just before 6 p.m. affected approximately 6,000 people in the areas between Bloor Street and The Queensway; and Kipling Avenue to Windermere Avenue.

The outage was linked to Sunday's winter storm after crews found a large branch on wires.

Just before 9:30 p.m., the company said power had been restored to the majority of the affected customers.

By 5 a.m. on Monday, power had been completely restored.
