January ice storm costs still being tallied

It seems less likely that NB Power will turn a profit this fiscal year thanks to January's devastating ice storm.

We still don't know the full cost of the restoration efforts, but we do know that overtime alone will cost the utility $4 million.

NB Power finished the third-quarter with earnings of $44 million.

The corporation calls the damage some of the most significant it has ever seen.

The ice storm saw about 600 poles broken, 130,000 customers without power, and more than 300 crews involved in the restoration.
