Even though Quebec did suffer some of Sandy's effects, the storm's high winds did not cause any fatalities in the province when they swept in on Monday night.
The strongest gusts were channelled along the St. Lawrence Valley, where wind warnings were in effect on Monday. In Laval, wind gusts of 87 km/h were reported, while in nearby Montreal they reached 74 km/h. Gusts of 87-km/h were also recorded around Quebec City, particularly on the Île d'Orléans.
Sandy's remnants did bring rain to Canada, although Quebec was spared the heaviest, except in Charlevoix, where 40 mm of rain were reported.
The strong winds caused damage to the province's electrical grid, with Hydro Quebec reporting around 50,000 customers were without power at the storm's height, down to a little over 12,000 homes by late afternoon Tuesday.
As with Ontario, transport was also also disrupted. Dozens of flights out of Montreal's Trudeau airport were cancelled, including flights into the hard-hit eastern United States, although some routes to Toronto were restored by Tuesday.
