Tens of thousands still without power

Tens of thousands of NB Power customers still don’t have electricity after Wednesday’s ice storm.

The utility has over 270 crews working all out to replace broken poles and string lines back up that were torn down by the thick coating of ice. But it will be days before they get to everybody.

Warming centres have been set up. You can check locations and times they’re open on the government and E-M-O websites. Besides warming up you can also charge cellphones.
