Outages were primarily caused by fallen trees and several broken poles. Up to 15 trees/branches fell on lines causing outages in the Old Town, St Davids and the Lakeshore Road area. Crews, along with help from our tree trimming service providers were able to clear the trees quickly and restore power to affected areas. NOTL Hydro has an aggressive tree trimming program and has on-call tree trimmers to respond in such emergency events. A total of 10 poles were damaged during the storm. These poles were temporarily secured to restore power to main feeders, and were replaced in the following days.
