UPDATE: Power Restored

Close to 1,000 Hydro One customers south of Listowel, in the Atwood and Newry areas, have power.

Power was restored just before 11 p.m. Saturday after several delays through the day.

In Monkton, a warming centre has been opened up at the Elma Logan Recreation Complex.

Another large cluster that was out of power, north and south of Goderich, was restored just before 6 p.m.

From 5:50 p.m.:

A reported power outage south of Listowel still has over 1,500 Hydro One customers without electricity.

The latest restoration time is 7:00 p.m. Saturday night, again, a later restoration time than originally posted earlier today.

Most of the customers affected by an outage north and south of Goderich have had their power restored but there are still a couple of hundred without electricity. Estimated restoration time is 9:00 p.m. and those affected are along the lake shore.

There are also three small clusters of outages, affecting under 50 customers each, near Mitchell.

From 4:20 p.m.:

Hydro One crews are working to restore power to areas south of Goderich and Listowel

Close to 1,000 customers are without power south of Goderich and 1,500 customers south of Listowel without electricity. Restoration time is listed as as late as 6:00 p.m., which are later times than what were posted earlier.

Freezing rain and ice pellets are expected to fall across the area all day and that will create slippery conditions. And a coat of ice is forming over hard surfaces.

There are cancellations that can be viewed by clicking here.

There is a Freezing Rain Warning in effect for Huron, Perth and Wellington counties with a Snowfall Warning in effect for Bruce and Grey counties.

Emergency services including police and fire and county roads departments are warning of changing conditions on the roads. And a reminder to have a 72 hour emergency kit ready.
