Efforts to restore power to hundreds of thousands of people in Ontario and Quebec are set to continue for days after thunderstorms Saturday caused severe damage, leaving at least 10 people dead.  

Hydro Quebec and Hydro One have a combined 367,250 clients still affected by outages, according to their websites at 4:38 p.m. Toronto time on Monday. Hydro Ottawa, which serves the nation’s capital, has about 143,000 customers without electricity. Alectra Utilities, which operates in suburbs and outlying regions around Toronto, is also still trying to restore full service.
