You likely heard the heavy rain in the middle of the night. Another weather system pushed through from the U.S. as Toronto hydro crews restored power to an additional 4000 customers, who’d been in the dark since Monday night’s floods. 16-thousand customers are still without electricity, primarily in the city’s west end. Toronto Hydro’s Andrea Corkum says it’s possible there could be more rolling power outages today to alleviate stress on the grid. She says, “we’ve also asked our customers to do their part with conservation.” There is more optimism at Hydro One, where a spokesperson says between 5000 and 10,000 customers in Toronto remain without power.
There is some good news for rail commuters. The TTC has resumed subway service between Islington and Jane stations. Shuttle buses are still running between Kipling and Islington stations. All Go Trains are running full service this morning, with the exception of the Milton Line which is not servicing Kipling Station because it remains flooded.
