UPDATED: Power restored to 14,000 in Barrhaven after power station overloaded in the heat

Hydro Ottawa says a massive power outage in the Barrhaven area has been corrected.

The outage affected more than 14,000 customers in several parts of the suburb.

Hydro Ottawa said "inclement weather" was the cause of the outage.

Barrhaven Councillor Jan Harder says the system was overloaded in the heat.
