After this winter storm, Hydro One is reminding you to be safe when power lines are down because of bad weather.

This comes after thousands of Hydro One customers across the North Hastings area were without power because of high winds, freezing rain, and heavy snow.

Hydro One says trees falling onto power lines make up 30 per cent of outages.

You are being asked to keep a safe distance from any fallen power lines and report them to police or Hydro One as soon as possible.
