Toronto Hydro said about 32,000 people were still without power in Toronto with 6,400 more in the dark in areas served by Hyrdo One early Friday, several days after an ice storm toppled utility poles, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported. That's down from more than 400,000 customers during last weekend's storm, the CBC said.
"Our ... hope is that we have the majority of our customers back this weekend, but those one-offs, or single-connection customers, they likely will be a few more days at least,"
Toronto Hydro spokeswoman Tanya Bruckmueller told the news network.
About 4,700 customers were without power in Quebec and more than 16,000 in New Brunswick where NB Power said it could be Tuesday before all its customers' lights come back on.
Environment Canada warned people another storm was expected to bring "significant snow and strong winds" late Sunday and early Monday, with the southern New Brunswick area expected to bear the brunt of the bad weather.
