Power restored to majority of Nova Scotians after latest storm-related blackout

Power has been restored to tens of thousands of Nova Scotians after the latest storm-related blackout in the province this winter.

Nova Scotia Power says the vast majority of the 22-thousand customers who were affected by outages on Saturday morning are back on the grid.

The utility says wet, heavy snow from a storm Friday caused tree branches to touch or even pull down power lines.

They say about 120 technicians across the province have been working to end the blackouts.
