It’s taking a long time to get back to normal after that powerful storm that swept through on Friday.
More than 61-thousand people are without power in Eastern Ontario and in Quebec as of this morning.
Just over 17-thousand Hydro-One customers have no electricity today.
Hydro One says some might people not have service restored until tomorrow.
Power lines were brought down by trees that were uprooted by gale-force winds that even overturned some cars.
Hydro Quebec says power has been restored to 90 per cent of customers in Montreal, but other areas north of the city could take longer.
A municipal worker in a Montreal suburb was killed by a falling tree during the storm, while at least 10 others were injured across Quebec
