Power restored to thousands of Huron County homes

Bullet News HURON COUNTY – Nearly 5,000 Hydro One customers in South Huron and parts of Bluewater and Huron East were the last to have power restored at around 11 p.m. last night.

Power to about 15,000 customers was cut off when a hydro pole on a 115-kV transmission line was knocked down at about 1 p.m. yesterday, probably in a weather-related incident, said a spokesperson from Hydro One tonight.

Crews rerouted lines so that about 10,000 customers could have power, while they continued to work on the downed line.
