AJAX, ON — May 24, 2022 – Elexicon Energy crews have restored power to more than 58,500 customers affected by Saturday’s severe storms that caused widespread and devasting damage to Ontario’s electricity system. The storm’s high winds downed trees, powerlines and a significant number of poles throughout Elexicon Energy’s service territory, including Uxbridge where a confirmed tornado touched down. Approximately 5,000 customers remain without power.
In total over 90% of our communities had their power restored, thanks to the hard work and dedication of our power line crews and teams.
Communities still affected include Ajax, Pickering, Whitby, Port Perry and Uxbridge. Today we were able to bring back power to many customers in these communities including 750 customers in Uxbridge. We would like to extend our thanks to our customers, crews, arborists and municipal partners for keeping restoration efforts moving safely and quickly. We anticipate that we will be able to make more progress tomorrow. For regular updates refer to our outage map and on Twitter.
Televisions, computers, and microwave ovens are sensitive to surges when the power is restored.
