A Message from Hydro One
Posted February 24th, 2019 on Niagara At Large
We’re preparing for a wind storm that may cause power outages
Our outage prediction tool is forecasting that the high winds expected to start Sunday morning could cause hundreds of outages across southern, central and eastern Ontario.
Our crews are moving into position to assess damage and quickly and safely restore power to affected customers. As the damage is assessed, we’ll provide an estimated time of restoration for each outage. We prioritize emergencies and restoration in order to bring power back to the largest number of customers in the shortest period of time.

Staying safe during a power outage
If the power system in your area is affected by bad weather, be sure to stay clear of any fallen power lines. If you spot a fallen line, keep back at least 10 metres. Downed lines can be very dangerous, even if they don’t appear to be live. Please report downed lines by calling 911 and Hydro One at 1-800-434-1235.
Is your family prepared for an emergency?
In the event of a longer power outage caused by severe weather, it’s important that you and your family are prepared. Be ready with an emergency preparedness kit.
