Hydro-Quebec restores power after 268000 Montrealers left in the dark

Hydro-Quebec power lines

More than 275,000 Hydro-Quebec customers are without power in Montreal, but the company says it shouldn't last much longer.

Fewer than 2,000 homes were still without power at 1:30 p.m., down from a peak of over 270,000 Hydro-Quebec clients that were hit at the blackout's peak.

It's still unclear whether a private contractor or Hydro crews on the ground cut the cord, though Abergel said preliminary information indicates it was the former.

"Obviously we're very concerned with what's just happened this morning".

The English Montreal School Board said several schools were affected by the blackout.

Montreal's transit authority says the outage is also causing delays with the city's subway service.
