Over 4,200 homes and businesses in Verdun are without power following and accident or incident that cut power to the area, according to Hydro-Quebec.

The utility says the area from 5th Ave. to Osborne St. bordered by Champlain and LaSalle Blvds. to the north and south will be off the grid for several hours.

The latest estimate was for power to be restored by 1 a.m. on Friday.

More to come.
