Power remains off for thousands around Nova Scotia

After a weekend of power disruptions across the province, Nova Scotia Power found itself dealing with some more on Monday.

A large outage in the Bible Hill area had roughly 2,600 customers without power into the evening.

Nova Scotia Power’s website cites a vehicle accident for the outage, and spokesperson Andrea Anderson said there was a downed wire in the area.

The estimated repair time is 6:30 p.m. on Monday.

There were 1,400 without power in the Kingston area after an insulator failure caused a pole fire. But power was restored to most customers by 5 p.m.

Much of the province was hit with 20 hours of freezing rain Thursday evening into Friday, with winds at times gusting up to 100 km/h per hour overnight Friday.

The power was out for more than 40,000 people at one point.

At 5:04 p.m., NSP had 3,520 customers across the province on the list.
