A large section of eastern P.E.I. lost power around 1 p.m. on Thursday when high winds caused havoc with trees on the power lines.
A crew found trees on the Baldwin Road down on lines and were patrolling for other problems.
Approximately 6,000 customers were down for about 90 minutes from Vernon River to Wood Islands and up to Montague. The Victoria Cross and Dover substations were the ones affected.
Those same customers then lost power again around 3 p.m. Crews had found a broken piece of equipment on the Heatherdale Road.
Power had been restored to over half of those customers — those in Eldon, Belfast, Montague, Vernon River, Caledonia, Sturgeon and surrounding areas — just before 4 p.m.
At 4:22 p.m., Maritime Electric reported the utility needed another piece of equipment in Roseneath to complete the repair on the Heatherdale Road to fix the problem and that it would take another 90 minutes.
At 4:52 p.m., Maritime Electric said it had another outage, this one in the St. Eleanors area, affecting approximately 600 customers. The 2,200 customers in the Dover/Panmure/Murray Harbour areas were still in thedark although power was restored there minutes later.
As of 10:30 Maritime Electric said there are about 19 customers without power, scattered individual areas in Rustico, St Margarets, Summerside, Augustine Cove, Stanley Bridge, and Canoe Cove.
St Eleanors/Sherbrooke power had been restored.
