Greater Sudbury Utilities along with the city and first responders continue to work clean-up and attempt to get power restored in parts of the city.

Around 12 pm on Tuesday, GSU said power was restored to about 1750 customers in the Notre Dame, Hawthorne Drive and Gemmell Street areas.

But around 600 people are still without power.

VP of Operations at GSU, Kerry Taylor continues to warn residents about downed wires especially as power starts to be restored.

Hydro crews are here from Sault Ste. Marie, North Bay and Huntsville and Sudbury Fire Services used 11 full-time and 8 volunteer crews right after the storm hit.

The press conference started at the beginning of the storm as an alert wasn’t issued despite there being two the week before for tornadoes.

GM of Community Services Joseph Nicholls says later an alert was sent out for dangers of downed wires.

Residents are not only dealing with a loss of power but the clean-up as well.

The area that was most affected just happened to have their garbage collection day on Tuesday.

If the city did not get to your house for collection by dark, bring the garbage back inside and it will be collected tomorrow.

GM General Manager of Infrastructure Services Tony Cecutti says they will be out collecting yard waste.

If you still don’t have power, call 705-675-7536 option 1.
