Hydro Quebec crews were out in force overnight after the band of rainstorms that swept through southern Quebec yesterday led to numerous small power failures.
At the height of the failures last evening, 50,000 Hydro Quebec customers on the island of Montreal were without electricity. Province-wide, the figure was 100,000.
As of noon Wednesday, those numbers are down to around 4,000 on the island of Montreal, and 15,000 across the province.
The West Island was one of the areas worst hit by the storm. The city of Kirkland accounts for 197 of the Hydro-Quebec customers still in the dark at of 12 p.m.
Hydro-Quebec says crews are out trying to resolve the problem as soon as possible.
