Many parts of the Maritime's spent Thursday without power.

A massive power outage crippled the area. In Halifax and surrounding areas 250,000 customers were taken offline.

The cause of the outage was a major transmission line near Port Hawkesbury was damaged.

Outages peaked at 51,000 customers for Maritime Electric, and all 7,000 Summerside Electric customers were also without power on Prince Edward Island.

It was too windy to produce wind power.
