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.
Our crews continue to work as safely and efficiently as possible to restore power to customers this evening. This crew is working in Caledonia and Queens County tonight. All crews will continue their work overnight in the hardest hit areas of the province. <a href=”https://t.co/jsL8JTHqiB”>pic.twitter.com/jsL8JTHqiB</a>
