Over 3,000 customers were without power Sunday morning according to the NB Power website after heavy winds caused outages throughout the province Saturday.

NB Power says the outages were not related to the floods and appeared to be mainly caused by trees making contact with their infrastructure.

It also says the focus of restoration efforts has been on addressing public safety involved with both events, either emergency disconnects due to the flood or downed power lines and trees dues due to the wind.

Crews are working to restore the power.

Over 9,700 customers were impacted by unplanned outages in New Brunswick late Saturday morning.
