May Long Weekend City Storm Response & Recovery

Conditions across our community remain dynamic and many are still without power.  We understand how difficult the disruption to power can be, and thank you for your patience, kindness to your neighbours, and to our city staff who are doing their best to keep essential services operating, and to assist those in need.

For the most up-to-date information please check the City of Peterborough Storm Response at:  Storm Response Updates

To report a downed power line call Hydro One at 1-800-434-1235 or report it online at

Hydro One customers can report their outage by texting 92887 (WATTS), online, through the company’s outage map and app, or by calling 1-800-434-1235. An estimated time of restoration will be assigned to each outage as damage is assessed. Customers can view the current status of their outage here.

Emergency services remind residents to only use 9-1-1 for emergencies – please do not call 9-1-1 for updates on the outage or to report a downed power line.

City Public Works crews are continuing recovery efforts, removing downed trees from streets and sidewalks. Fallen trees that are caught in live power lines have to be left until the power lines are safely addressed. Residents are asked to stay clear of trees that may be damaged as they may be unsafe with limbs that could still fall.

Thank you for pulling together as a community!
