NB Power continues efforts to restore electricity to customers following powerful weekend winds

NB Power continues its efforts to restore power to thousands of customers who have been without electricity since powerful winds ripped through the Maritimes over the weekend.

As of Wednesday morning, a little over 8,000 customers were without power, mostly in the southern part of the province, though 630 in the Miramichi were still in the dark.

The utility says additional crews will be joining the restoration effort today.
