It's a dark, windy and stormy Halloween out there on Thursday, October 31 and there are already thousands without power in Ontario. According to a press release from Hydro One, crews are prepared for any Ontario power outages that have already started. They will restore power as needed during what they say is "expected to be the most damaging storm of 2019."\nIn the Hydro One press release, Lyla Garzouzi the Vice President of Distribution for Hydro One explained that they were taking a proactive approach to the storm. "Our crews are gearing up for a Halloween storm and will be vigilant if we are dispatched to any emergencies," they said.\nThere have been 45 reported power outages so far affecting approximately 4,842 customers. The estimated time to return power to affected customers is 6:30 PM EST.
