At 10:30 am today, power went out from Eglinton south to Wellesley and Spadina east to Yonge. With the extremely cold weather that’s been forecasted for this weekend, I was very concerned and immediately contacted the Office of the President of Toronto Hydro for an update.
I’ve been advised that both Toronto Hydro and Hydro One crews are on site and are working to determine the cause of the outage. While we don’t currently have an estimated time for the restoration, I can assure you that crews are focused on the restoration process. As soon as I receive further information from Toronto Hydro, I will let you know.
If you are aware of a senior or anyone else affected by the power outage that is on their own without access to the internet, TV or radio, please consider checking in on them.
