Nearly a week after the start of the storm on Friday, there are still 11,023 customers who are in the dark, across the province.
Unsurprisingly, it is the Capitale-Nationale which remains the most affected region, with 5,330 households without electricity. The Laurentians follow closely with 2,259 households without electricity.
The state-owned company must also connect 950 homes in Mauricie, 918 on the North Shore, 734 in Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, 406 in Outaouais and 284 in Bas-Saint-Laurent.
In the rest of Quebec, there are still a few dozen residences that are down.
Recall that Hydro-Québec anticipated a return to normal as of Wednesday evening.
