Scattered power outages remain in the province following the wind storm.

According to Nova Scotia Power’s outage map, as of 10 a.m. Wednesday, there are still about 3,000 customers without electricity.

Most of those affected are in Bridgewater and Stellarton.

About 100,000 customers lost power at the peak of Monday’s storm.

Utility crews had to wait for the 80-km/h winds to subside before they could safely make repairs.

NSP says about 500 crew members were in the field Tuesday working to restore power.
