Nova Scotia's Emergency Management Office (EMO) says around 202,000 Nova Scotia Power customers remain without power on Monday.

In a morning update, EMO says Bell is working closely with the utility to restore its operations for downed lines to bring back phone service in some areas.

Provincial parks will remain closed until at least Wednesday, while trails and protected areas across the province may have wash-outs and debris.

Provincial government offices with power are open today, but the public is asked to call ahead to confirm if a particular office is open.

EMO reminds the public that food safety will start to become a concern as power outages approach 48 hours.

The Town of Truro says residents can take branches downed by Dorian to the Old Landfill on the top of Young Street starting tomorrow.

The service will be available from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday to Friday until September 20th.
