Scarborough power outage blamed on downed utility pole

Toronto Hydro said it could be mid-morning Monday before power is restored to a Scarborough neighbourhood.

Nearly 1,000 customers along Ellesmere Road, between Midland Ave. and Kennedy Rd., have been without electricity throughout the morning due to a downed utility pole on Progress Ave.

Toronto Hydro said its crews are on the scene and working to restore power.
