SD&G – It won’t be until later tonight before power is back up for scores of people across the United Counties.
Many of the hardest hit areas, such as Martintown, Alexandria and Osnabruck Center, have largely been restored.
But, as of 4 p.m. Thursday, there are still pockets of outages all across SD&G that Hydro One crews are working to restore.
The estimated time for the power to come back on is 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. tonight and, in some places in North Glengarry, the lights won’t be on until 8 a.m. Friday.
The area was hit with hours of rain and freezing rain, leading to branches falling on hydro wires and, in some cases, hydro poles catching fire or shorting out.
