Power Crews On Alert

In the aftermath of a fierce lightning storm, small pockets of Windsor-Essex and Chatham-Kent remain without power.

Enwin Utilities says about 1,900 customers were in the dark at the height of a power outage in Windsor stretching from Riverside Dr. south to Ypres Blvd., and from Dougall Ave. east to Drouillard Rd. Most outages were automatically restored within moments, but crews remain on alert. Small impacts involving individual customers and transformer sites continue to keep workers busy.

More storms are anticipated throughout the day and Enwin is asking customers to report any electrical dangers like downed lines to 519-255-2727.

Hydro One customers are asked to call 1-800-434-1235. For Entegrus customers in Chatham-Kent, the number to call is 519-352-6300.
