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 power.
The state corporation 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.
