ALL POWER HAS BEEN RESTORED IN THE QUINTE REGION.
It’s been a windy, messy night, with snow changing to freezing rain and then over to rain.
Fire, public works and hydro crews have been out in various parts of our listening area dealing
with tree fall and downed power lines and flaming transformers.
However, there are only two significant power outages in the area. The largest power outage affects 4,000 hydro customers in Trenton, on the east side of the Trent River.
Meanwhile, about 300 customers in the Northport area, on the north end of the Skyway Bridge in Prince Edward County are also without power.
In Belleville, the power was out to a small area near the consolidated courthouse, however power was restored at around 3:30 this morning.
