He says it power will likely be out for at least a few hours, meaning it won’t be restored until 3:30pm Friday at the earliest.

Hydro is not saying what is causing the outage, though a safe bet may be the windstorm hitting the area.

The local forecast is for the windy conditions to continue overnight and through Saturday, so you are advised to have a stock of emergency supplies ready.
