Thousands of Horizon Utilities customers in Hamilton have their power back on.
A hydro outage started just after 5 o’clock this morning and initially affected almost 35-thousand customers throughout the city.
Horizon Utilities says it originally suspected the cause of the outage was a supply problem from Hydro One.
But it now says “animal contact” caused the outage which affected homes and businesses from the lower city to the mountain.
Horizon Utilities says the power was completely restored at around 7:30 a.m.
