Power has been restored in the Keewatin area of Kenora. Between 250 and 500 homes were without power over the lunch hour today.
Power was interrupted around 11 a.m. and it was restored shortly after noon. Hydro crews from Synergy North were looking after the issue.
Synergy North is the new utility, formed by the merger of Kenora Hydro and Thunder bay hydro. They were still looking into the cause of the outage at 12:30 this afternoon, noting it could've simply been the heavy load on the system in the extreme cold weather.
