Thousands without power in Nova Scotia following Friday's storm

Many parts of the Maritimes are digging out on Saturday after a second round of bad weather moved into Atlantic Canada. 

Nova Scotia Power estimates there are over 19,000 customers who were without power as of 7 a.m. on Saturday following the heavy snowfall. 

The utility says 120 powerline technicians are working to restore the outages, which are primarily affecting customers in Truro, Amherst, and the Annapolis Valley.  

Power is expected to be restored to the majority of cutomers by the end of day on Saturday. 

Driving conditions also quickly deteriorated on Friday, which resulted in the temporary closure of a section of Highway 102. 

RCMP say the section of highway was closed between Enfield and Truro for about an hour due to multiple crashes.
