Winter storm: more than 135,000 homes still without power
The damage caused by the winter storm that hit Quebec this Christmas weekend still deprived more than 135,000 homes of electricity this Sunday morning, according to the most recent report from Hydro-Québec. The company says 2,364 outages are underway across the province.
The National Capital, where 40,000 Quebecers woke up without power, is the most severely affected region, followed by Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, Montérégie, Côte-Nord and the Laurentians.

Remember that at the height of the storm, overnight from Friday to Saturday, more than 350,000 homes were left without electricity.
The President and CEO of Hydro-Québec Sophie Brochu will hold a new press briefing this Sunday at 11 a.m. to take stock of the situation.
More details to come.
