The high winds overnight and this morning have affected the province’s power grid.
As of 7am, Hydro Quebec was reporting that close to 17, 000 customers were in the dark.
About half of the outages are in the Laurentians with the rest scattered through Montreal, Laval, the Outaouais, Mauricie, and Montérégie.
In our area, there are close to one hundred Hydro customers without service in St. Lazare and Vaudreuil.
Power is expected to be restored by about 9 this morning in those cases.
