CityPlace among four areas affected by blackout

CityNews | posted Thursday, Sep 8th, 2016

For the fourth time in just over a week, Toronto’s CityPlace neighbourhood is blanketed by a blackout.

The power went out in the stretch of condos near the waterfront late on Wednesday night and Toronto Hydro crews are still working to repair it.

It’s one of four areas still without power. Toronto Hydro said that the Bathurst Street and Eglinton Avenue area, the Birchmount Road and Sheppard Avenue area, and the Bayview Avenue and Post Road area are all affected.

Earlier, the Junction neighbourhood and High Park were also without power. Power has since been restored.

Windy weather, which knocked down branches onto wires, and rain are to blame for some of the outages.

The CityPlace outage comes after the power went out to nine buildings three times last week. On Saturday, the outage lasted nearly 18 hours. Then, the problem was two faulty cables. A main cable and a backup cable were both fully replaced.
