THUNDER BAY – Wednesday night’s storm knocked out power to about 6000 customers in Thunder Bay. Thunder Bay Hydro reports that they have restored power to a majority of the customers who lost power due to the storm cell that moved through the south end of the city last night.

A section of Arthur Street west of the Arthur St. Marketplace remains without power as well as many isolated smaller pockets of customers. At this time under 400 customers remain without power.

At its height, storm related damage downed two main power lines, broke several poles and created tree related line interference in many areas affecting about 6000 customers.

Ninety percent of customers had been restored by midnight. Crews worked through the night and continue to identify areas of damage.

Our Customer Service representatives continue to receive information about line problems this morning. Work is being prioritized based on safety concerns and ability to impact the largest number of customers.
