MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 11, 2021 /CNW/ – Alectra Utilities deployed dozens of powerline maintainers and forestry workers to restore service to thousands of homes and businesses who experienced power disruptions due to high winds.
Weather-related power outages were reported across Alectra’s service territory as a result of extreme winds causing damage and tree limbs coming into contact with equipment.
Alectra crews will continue working through the night restoring power to impacted homes and businesses across the Greater Toronto Area, although a small number of customers may be without power through the night.
In the meantime, those who are still without power are encouraged to remain patient and to check on relatives and neighbours who may require assistance. Customers may get updates on the company’s power restoration efforts by following the Alectra Twitter channel @AlectraNews or view the outage map at www.alectrautilities.com.
