Hydro One sending 30 power line workers to help storm-ravaged Nova Scotia

Hydro One says it’s sending some 30 workers to help restore power in Nova Scotia in the wake of post-tropical storm Fiona.

The storm ravaged a stretch of Atlantic Canada spanning Nova Scotia’s eastern mainland to Cape Breton, Prince Edward Island and southwestern Newfoundland.

More than 200,000 homes and business across the region are still without electricity.

The Ontario utility says its employees are trained to work in emergency situations on both transmission and distribution systems.

It says the power line workers will be helping Nova Scotia Power with restoration efforts near Truro.

The workers are expected to reach the affected areas by tonight.

This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 27, 2022.
