There are several thousand customers without power on the Avalon Peninsula, Bonavista Peninsula, and Burin Peninsula.
Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro is reporting an outage in Gaultois and Brents Cove, Harbour Round, LaScie, Tilt Cove.
Newfoundland power is not attempting to restore power in many cases because severe weather conditions and impassable roads are currently preventing crews from safely accessing storm-related outage areas.
If your power is gone, turn off all your appliances and electronic equipment, and turn your heating thermostats down to prevent damage a power surge.
