FREDERICTON, N.B.- The storm is beginning to have an impact on power in the province.

NB Power is reporting a number of power outages in the province.

Utility spokesperson Meghan Gerrish says the recent wind storm in the province could also have an impact. “Some of the areas that were worst affected in the last storm may have some trees that are weakened from the high winds of the last storm last week”, says Gerrish. “We are certainly keeping a close eye on those areas”.

Gerrish says crews were sent out yesterday to areas of the province most likely to be seriously impacted by this storm.
