Power restored in the Annex, subway service resumes

news staff | posted Wednesday, Nov 23rd, 2016

A power outage in the Annex left 2,400 customers in the dark on Wednesday and had an impact on the morning’s subway service.

The outage began before 4:30 a.m. Power was restored by 6:15 a.m.

According to a Toronto Hydro map, there were three separate outages in the area bounded by Dufferin Street, College Street, Avenue Road, and St. Clair Avenue.

The outage was caused by a loss of supply from Hydro One. The power comes from Hydro One and is then distributed to the city.

TTC subway service was suspended between St. George to Lawrence West stations due to the outage. Shuttle buses were running until service resumed around 6:20 a.m.
