Toronto Hydro says crews are working hard to restore power to thousands of customers in the dark Monday evening.
At it’s peak, over 6,000 residents were affected.
5,200 residents had their power knocked out around Jane and Dundas. The power company says they suspect an underground cable fault to be the cause. Power in the neighbourhood has since been restored.
A flood near Bloor and Ossington shut down power for some 1,000 residents. Crews suspect they will be without power until midnight.
Bloor/Ossington: We apologize for the missed ETOR. Crews are still pumping water from the vault & are not able to restore power yet #darkto

Power was briefly out in Bathurst and Glencarin, but has since been restored. In Scarborough, around 786 customers are also without power, restoration time is unknown. Police are asking any drivers to treat all dark intersections as 4-way stops.
Please treat all affected signalized intersections as 4-way stops. Use caution ^ph
