A freezing rain warning has ended on P.E.I.

Environment Canada ended the warning at about 2 p.m. Sunday.

Wind and freezing rain hammered much of P.E.I. Sunday morning, leaving more than 200 Maritime Electric customers without power in the eastern part of the province.

Power has been restored to almost all of them.

Environment Canada had issued the freezing rain warning for Kings County on Saturday, and extended it to Queens County on Sunday.

RCMP said they responded to some weather-related collisions Sunday morning, and urged motorists to drive with caution.
