Power outages in Kitchener and Waterloo

Waterloo North Hydro has been working tirelessly to restore electricity to about 4,000 customers.

A “fairly large chunk,” of the City of Waterloo’s west-side had been knocked out since early evening, and Waterloo North Hydro expected the power to be back on by midnight, Monday night / Tuesday morning. The last area left to be restored is the Keats Way neighbourhood.

Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro also reported isolated power outages, due to high-winds, and fallen trees. In particular, hydro on King Street is out from Breithaupt Street to Union Street.

Also, Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro has reported an isolated outage on Wilmot Line and Carmel Koch.

Cambridge North-Dumfries Hydro has reported an outage in the north Cambridge area, with about 80 customers affected. There was no indication on how long power would be out.

Also, Guelph Hydro reports dealing with minor power “blips” through-out the evening in the south-end of Guelph. As well as small isolated outages that were quickly repaired.

Power is back on in Floradale. However, a truck hit a couple of poles and the area affected is Arthur Street north of Cedar Springs and along Floradale Road from Arthur to Sideroad 18. This outage has been expected to be back around by 8:00 pm, however, a hydro pole had to be replaced, extending the repair time.
