HALIFAX - Roughly 13,000 Nova Scotia Power customers are still without power today after a storm ripped through the region Friday.
The utility says some people may not see their lights come back on until late Sunday evening.
Utility spokeswoman Bev Ware says at one point this weekend, 67,000 customers were without power.
Nova Scotia Power says crews are grappling with heavy, wet snow that has built up on tree branches, causing them to droop over power lines.
The Cape Breton Regional Municipality has opened six warming centres across the island equipped with hot beverages and outlets for charges devices.
