Power was restored to nearly all NB Power customers early Thursday following a massive outage.
On Wednesday, nearly 50,000 customers were without electricity. The outage was caused by a tree falling on a transmission line, NB Power spokesperson Dominique Couture said in an email to CBC News.
By early Thursday, just a handful of customers in Fredericton and Moncton were still without power,
Couture said the first report of an outage came in at 8:45 p.m.
