Remaining outages will be repaired Tuesday night: Newfoundland Power

Newfoundland Power says electricity should be restored to all customers by the end of Tuesday night.

Only a small number of customers were still without power as of 8 p.m., according to Michele Coughlan, a spokesperson for the utility company. About 750 customers were without power Tuesday morning.

The outages were first reported Saturday, amid a wind storm that knocked out power to tens of thousands of people and wreaked havoc on homes and traffic on the Avalon Peninsula.

More than 66,000 Newfoundland Power customers have been brought back online since the storm hit.

The utility brought a temporary generator to the Trepassey area on Monday to restore power to as many people as possible, while crews continued to repair significant damages to a power line.

Stella Maris Academy in Trepassey was closed Tuesday due to the outage.

Meanwhile, the Come By Chance refinery saw a temporary power interruption at about 12:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to North Atlantic Refining, which said the outage knocked some of its units offline.

It's not clear if that outage was related to problems experienced by Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro due to the weekend windstorm.
