Power has been restored to the almost 25,000 customers left in the dark after a walloping wind storm blew through the city on Sunday.
Toronto Hydro said crews are still working to return power to about 650 customers. The power outages are spread out in small patches throughout the city.
Crews are making progress and will continue working throughout the day. Appox 650 customers still remain without power.

Extra crews were brought in to help restore power overnight and will continue to work until power is restored to all customers.
The heavy winds knocked down trees and power lines across the city and prompted Environment Canada to issue a wind warning for most of Sunday afternoon.
Environment Canada predicted wind gusts of 70 to 80 — and even 90 — kilometres per hour in parts of northern and southwestern Ontario.
Very blustery winds moved through the city and the GTA during the afternoon hours, picking up speed around 3:30 p.m. The warning officially ended around 4:30 p.m.
CityNews viewers sent in photos and videos from their neighbourhoods as wind and rain began lashing Toronto on Sunday afternoon.
