More than 120,000 Hydro-Quebec customers across the province are without power this afternoon as high winds whip through southern Quebec.

Environment Canada's weather office is reporting southerly and southwesterly winds of up to 90 kilometres and hour will continue through the afternoon.

Two Hydro poles fell on the Highway 40 service road at Cavendish Boulevard in Ville St-Laurent, as did a traffic light at the nearby intersection of Côte-Vertu and Cavendish boulevards.

There are reports of fallen trees all over Montreal, as well. In the city, an estimated 10,000 clients are without electricity.
