Over 5,000 customers are affected, according to Toronto Hydro, and the restoration process is still in step three of four, which means it could still be a while until the power returns. Some residents are taking to Twitter to express their concerns.
One user tweeted at 12: 55 p.m., "what is happening with the power at Finch and Islington? No updates! Nothing! I have many neighbors who are seniors."
Toronto Hydro responded to the tweet saying "the preliminary time of restoration is approx. 4 p.m. This is based on historical data and may be updated," however, their outage map, which was last updated at 1:37 p.m., currently predicts power will return at 4:42 p.m.
