Hydro One crews are continuing efforts to restore power to more than 6,000 customers in Prince Edward County following early morning outages due to strong winds.

Meanwhile, residents are cleaning properties of damage from the high winds overnight, including flooded basements. Some trees and branches are being cleared from roadways.

Power in many areas has been restored, though some may be waiting until late this afternoon.

While most of Bloomfield power is restored, crews were on scene before lunch time today dealing with lines on Stanley Street. Outages included residents in Cherry Valley, Picton, Bloomfield, Wellington, Waupoos, Milford, Demorestville, Carrying Place and Ameliasburgh.

The Wellington Arena was closed in the morning and Beach Street was closed except for local traffic. Water and debris due to the high winds closed the beach.
