Toronto Hydro – Power Outage Update

I’ve been in constant contact with Toronto Hydro since yesterday’s windstorm advocating for Ward 25.

Toronto Hydro just advised that power has been fully restored across the Ward.

If your house continues without power, Toronto Hydro advises that you should:

–Check your electrical panel inside the home to see if the breakers are in the “on” position.

–Check outside and visually inspect if the electrical equipment on your home is damaged or if the service wire is down. If the customer-owned connection point (usually the pipe and wires attached to your home connected to the powerline) is damaged, you may need to contact an ESA-certified electrical contractor. A list is available on the ESA’s website at http://www.esasafe.com.

–Please report your outage to 416-542-8000

Paperbirch, Veery, Overland and Terhill were particularly hard hit and I’ve asked Toronto Hydro to continue their work to solve the neighbourhood’s ongoing power outages once and for all.
