Get ready for snow, be prepared for power outages

With heavy snow expected tonight, Hydro One is getting ready to respond to power outages. 

The company says it’s anticipating damaging ice storms in some parts of southern Ontario today and tomorrow and crews are being put into positions to help. 

Hydro One has a number of tools people can use to report outages, including texting 92887 or WATTS.

It’s encouraging people to have an emergency kit handy, with items such as food, batteries and blankets.
