Outages affect 509 homes in the West Island

Hydro-Québec said 509 households were without power on Monday morning on the West Island.

The utility’s website showed outages affecting Dollard des Ormeaux, Kirkland, and Pointe Claire.

Jean-Philippe Rousseau, a spokesperson for Hydro-Québec, said the outages began at 9:40 a.m., and the utility sent a crew to investigate the problem.

An equipment breakdown was to blame, in a junction where an above-ground cable connected to an underground cable. It was repaired, and power was restored about 3:30 p.m.
