Hydro One customers in Tweed and Madoc found themselves without power this morning.
Over 10,000 people in an area north of Belleville to Kingston lost power early this morning.
As of 9 a.m. power was partially restored leaving approximately 2,000 still in the dark.
Hydro One says the outage was caused by an equipment failure at the Sharbot Lake distribution centre.
Power was estimated to be restored for those still without power by 2 p.m.
