Ice storm: Montreal opens six emergency shelters
While more than 375,000 households are still in the dark in Montreal on Thursday evening, the City is opening six temporary emergency accommodation centers where people without electricity can spend the night while waiting for the situation to recover.

In order to know the inventory of fixtures municipal facilities, the population is invited to consult the various communication platforms issued by the boroughs and related cities and, if necessary, to communicate with them beforehand in order to plan their trips.
The City of Montreal ensures that it is hard at work on the ground in order to ensure the safety of the population as well as the fluidity of travel. She reiterates the importance of avoiding parks in order to give teams time to verify the risks and carry out the necessary interventions.
