Power restored to most Ontario homes left in the dark by Sandy
Energy Minister Chris Bentley says hydro crews have restored power to the vast majority of homes affected by outages as the massive weather system
whipped through the province.
At its height, Sandy left nearly 150,000 customers without power in Ontario and Bentley says more than 140,000 now have electricity back.
He says hydro crews have been toiling overnight and will continue to make repairs throughout the day in the communities still experiencing outages, including Toronto, Parry Sound, Bracebridge and Lambton.
In the United States, the death toll from Sandy
has reached 50 — and more than eight million people, from Maine to the Carolinas, are still waiting for the power to return.
