Thousands affected by power outage in city's west end
Approximately 6,000 people were affected, Toronto Hydro said
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.
Tonight’s outage was caused by a tree branch taking down a wire in the west end. While our crews worked to fix this, our control room was able to restore about 5,600 of 6,000 customers remotely. We thank customers for their patience this evening. <a href="https://t.co/mbWiKaucUl">pic.twitter.com/mbWiKaucUl</a>—@TorontoHydro
