Power restorations close to complete
This morning, Nova Scotia Power crews restored almost half of the fewer than 2,500 customers who remained without power at day break.
Just under 1300 customers were without power as of noon today.
Since 5 a.m. Monday when the storm first hit the eastern end of the province, NS Power has restored 190,174 customers.
There are 93 Nova Scotia Power and contract crews and 27 tree cutting crews working today. Most of those crews are focusing their efforts in the eastern part of the province, including 22 crews in the Stellarton to Antigonish area and 61 crews in the Sydney area.
The majority of the remaining customers will be back on this evening and all customers will be reconnected by 11 a.m. Friday.
