Thousands still without power in northern New Brunswick

NB Power reported some electricity outages early Thursday, mostly in the northern part of the province.

However, there were about 2,100 NB Power customers who were without power Thursday morning in the Central York/Sunbury areas. 

Dozens of NB Power customers in this area were still without power around noon.   

Meanwhile, over 6,000 customers in the province, mainly in the Restigouche region, were experiencing power outages. 

The utility's spokesman said most of the losses of power were due to an equipment failure at a substation.
