It was a tough Wednesday night for Toronto Hydro customers downtown.
Not only were temperatures soaring, but there were also tens of thousands of extra people downtown for the Beyonce and Selena Gomez concerts, as well as a massive crowd at Jurassic Park trying to watch The Raptors game.
To top it off, the power went out just after 5:00 p.m. in an area bounded by Front Street, Parliament Street, Queen’s Quay and York Street.
Crews worked for over twelve hours making repairs to faulty underground equipment, and managed to have power restored by about 6:30 a.m. Thursday, about an hour and a half ahead of schedule.
Power has now been restored to the Front/Parliament/Queen’s Quay/York area! But if you’re still out, please call 416-542-8000 to report. — Toronto Hydro (@TorontoHydro) May 26, 2016
