More than 3,000 customers remain without power in Ontario today after strong winds hit the southern and eastern parts of the province on Saturday.

Hydro One says 3,565 customers are without power as of 6:20 p.m.

The utility says there are 96 active outages and utility crews are working to restore power to customers.
