HALIFAX - Nova Scotians are being asked to check on their neighbours and elderly people in the areas hardest hit by post-tropical storm Arthur to see if they need any help.

A large tree fell across the playground area at TAAC Grounds during Saturday's storm.

Power outages are now in the third day and some Nova Scotians may not have power restored until Wednesday or later and are dealing with medical equipment issues, loss of battery power, lack of water, and spoiled food.

Nova Scotia Power crews are working to restore power, concentrated in mostly the western and central regions of the province.

 

Call 1-877-428-6004 to receive information on estimated restoration time in your area.

 

Comfort stations have been set up in some areas to help people. For a list of the centres go to, http://novascotia.ca/news/docs/2014/07/ComfortCentres.pdf .

    I just don't get it. With the millions NS Power has bilked out it's customers why do they not have a rapid response team for just that sort of thing. Providing food, battery power, medical device support and so on from the customers that have no choice but to rely on that power service. If there were perhaps an alternate power service provider there wouldn't be such a delay in resorted service. Buried cables would be an advantage as well!
