High winds wreck Christmas for thousands in Nova Scotia

A storm knocked out power to tens of thousands of Nova Scotians on Christmas Day as high winds blew trees onto power lines and broke utility poles.

About 55,000 Nova Scotia Power customers are without electricity as a Christmas Day windstorm works its way through the province.

Nova Scotia Power said the storm caused "significant damage to the electricity system".

Nova Scotia Power spokeswoman Tiffany Chase said around 123,000 customers who were blacked out had their power restored by around noon on Tuesday. The company said it has about 400 people helping to restore service and 250 other workers on duty, including customer service staff.

Environment Canada has issued warnings of severe winds, blowing snow and blizzard conditions in Newfoundland and Labrador, which the agency said could persist until Wednesday in some parts of the province.

Police in Halifax say a number of streets in the capital were closed Monday because of debris falling from high-rise buildings and that the cleanup could take at least several days.

Following cancellations and extended delays on Monday, flights in and out of Halifax Stanfield International Airport appeared back to normal Tuesday morning.

In total, approximately 158,000 Nova Scotians have been affected by the outages, Chase said, amounting to almost one-third of the utility's 507,000 customers throughout the province. Yet others finished cooking dinner on the barbecue or woodstove or fired up the generator.
