Outage Leaves Many Essex County Residents In The Dark

Hundreds of Hydro One customers are still without power in Essex County.

The hydro company reported the outage Thursday evening, which spreads between Leamington and Tecumseh, and is also affecting Lakeshore.  Over 3,000 hydro customers experienced the outage, but as of midnight, only a few hundred were still without power.

Hydro crews have responded and are working to restore power.

Estimated power restoration was expected at around 8:45pm, but has since been extended to 4pm on Friday.
