Teams clean up after the storm, some trails closed

Winds of much lower intensity yesterday than on Saturday night allowed municipalities and utility companies to get on with the aftermath of the storm.

Environment Canada has lifted its storm warning.

Municipality of Clarington said Edward Street will close between Mill Street and Beaver Street on December 13 (today) from 9 am to 1 pm for tree removal. Detours available via alternate routes.

Township of Scugog said the Waterfront Trail between Coulter Street and Simcoe Street is closed due to fallen trees. Staff will be working to clear the trail over the next couple of days.

Oshawa Power said a huge thank you to its crews for their hard work getting customers reconnected this weekend and to customers, for their patience as it worked to get power back up and running.

Ivano Labricciosa, President and CEO of Oshawa Power yesterday said the team has been out repairing problems most of the afternoon and are still at it clearing things up. Small pocket problems kept them hopping most of the day. Grateful for the dedication to service, commitment to safety and for doing their very best to get things back up fast.

Durham Regional Police Service (DRPS) said great work yesterday by Oshawa Power to quickly respond to power outages caused by high winds. “Thank you to everyone who payed extra close attention to #RoadwaySafety as well. If you’re ever faced with malfunctioning traffic lights always remember to treat it as an all way stop”.

Elexicon Energy announced its teams were in a clean up mode and restoring power to a few more areas.

“Thank you for patience during the storm. If you are without power and need assistance, please call our outage line at 1-866-579-6819,” it said.

It also thanked its staff for their response to the emergencies that developed with trees and animals downing power lines and causing outages.

“A special thank you to our amazing teams for the great work that they do, especially yesterday and today. As they faced the wind and rain storm to restore power to our customers. You’re the Best!” said an Elexicon tweet yesterday.
