Today’s freezing rain and wind has rendered nearly 200,000 Hydro-Québec customers without power.

In a phone call with Daily Hive, an employee of Quebec’s public utility company confirmed that “nearly 200,000 total customers are powerless, 16,000 of those on the island of Montreal.”

As of 3 pm, the hardest hit region, according to Hydro-Québec, was the Laurentians which had just under 74,000 black outs.
