Hydro Québec says bad weather was the cause of several power outages that affected parts of St-Lazare and Hudson Wednesday morning.
About 30,000 households are affected, with other outages reported in the Laurentians, Lanaudière, Quebec City, Mauricie, and Chaudière-Appalaches regions.
Two schools in the Off-Island region were closed Wednesday morning due to power outages.
The utility is posting regular updates on its website. The most recent post said most homes should expect to have power restored by the afternoon.
