TORONTO, July 9, 2013 /CNW/ - Toronto Hydro-Electric System Limited
emergency crews continue with power restoration efforts. As of 8 a.m.,
approximately 20,000 customers still remain without power in the areas
bounded by Dundas Street South to Valermo Drive; The West Mall East to
Stephen Drive, and Ormskirk Avenue south to The Queensway; South
Kingsway East to Windermere Avenue.
The main issue relates to a lack of supply from a Hydro One station in
Toronto due to flooding. Power outages are also affecting TTC service
along Bloor between Jane and Kipling and we are working with Hydro One
to address this issue. Consult the TTC for other transportation service
Also, as restoration efforts continue, customers are urged to conserve
electricity by turning off non-essential appliances or lights, and
consider powering down heavy equipment, such as air conditioners in
order to reduce the strain on the electricity system.
Customers who do not live in the west end and are without power should
call our Lights Out line at 416-542-8000 to report their outage.
