Thousands without power without snow, powerful winds Atlantic pummel in the Atlantic


Thousands of houses still live in the dark after a snowy transition from the Atlantic of Canada, as they will set up several schools and warming centers in the region on Friday.

The major snowstorms scattered on the eastern coast of Canada on Thursday caused heavy winds and humid rainfall and heavy snowfall throughout the entire day to reduce various electric lines throughout the region.

Power outages peak on Wednesday with more than 300,000 customers – Eskaia about 250,000 customers in Nova Scotia. This number has closed around 13,000 in the province.

Continual interruptions are concentrated in northern and northeastern Scotland, most of them in Amherst, Stellarton and Tatamagouche.

The company says that it will update the restoration days throughout the day.

"Restructuring has been particularly challenging in the northeastern province, where crews were connecting trees with trees and connecting cables to it," said Sean Borden, Scotland's Power Storm Lead.

Operations remain in P.E.

In P.E., outages reached 80,000 to Maritime Electric, thanks to 7000 Summerside Electric customers. On Friday morning, 7,000 customers of the electric maritime industry still suffered interruptions.

Non-provincial groups help the recovery of power and utility cleaning services.

"We're still a recovery mode for ourselves, cleanliness will take place every day and week," said Kim Griffin, spokeswoman for Maritime Electric.

Additionally, the underwater cable that connects New Brunswick to the network has cut off the current flow of electricity.

In New Brunswick, there are more than 8,000 NB Power customers without electricity. At the tops of the storm, NB Power had no more than 46,000 customers without electricity, after 80 kilometers of windfall had passed.

Most customers are still in Kent County, 3,000 households remain in the vicinity.

Marc Belliveau, NB Power spokesman, said more than 90 people are recovering from power throughout the province. Energy is expected again for residents' recovery on Friday.

In the meantime, Belliveau requires customers to switch off the line or cut off the cables from the trees, and households can not have the power to disconnect items.

"This cold charge collection causes repetitive disruptions while recovering power and slowing down our progress," he said.
