Over 1,300 customers in the Kennebecasis Valley Fundy area and Fredericton-Oromocto region have had their power restored.

N.B. Power's website indicated most of the outages were along a stretch from Evandale and Grand Bay-Westfield.

N.B. Power spokesperson Marc Belliveau said a call came in regarding a power outage in the Rothesay area at around noon Sunday.

Approximately 980 customers in the region had lost power.

"After we patrolled the area, we found a very large tree on one of our transmission lines," Belliveau said.

He said crews were finishing up with the tree on the line when they discovered an unrelated issue on a section that was still live.

That led to another outage for 270 customers.

Belliveau said remaining customers can expect power this afternoon.

Over 60 customers in the Fredericton and Oromocto areas are still experiencing a separate outage.
