Environment Canada had issued a severe thunderstorm alert in the early hours of Tuesday morning for the Greater Montreal area which has since been lifted.
The passing storm was still big enough to cause a power outage.
The city’s most affected area is Pointe-Saint-Charles, specifically from Rue d’Hibernia to Rue le Ber where 326 homes were without power as of 8:30 am, Tuesday.
The Le Plateau and Mile-Ex regions of the city are also dealing with a power outage as more than 50 cases of power outages have been reported.
Montreal North is dealing with a substantial outage as 4,257 residents are without electricity. Hydro-Québec claims Montreal North is dealing with an electrical accident caused by this morning’s storm.
The public utility company claims to have all the affected areas back on track by early afternoon Tuesday.
