Several thousand customers in southern New Brunswick were without power Sunday afternoon, but N.B. Power restored electricity for all but a few dozen of them by 5:45 p.m.

Earlier in the afternoon, N.B. Power had approximately 4,000 customers without power, according to the utility's outage map.

The outages were mostly located in the area between Quispamsis and Sussex, as well as around Richibucto.

N.B. Power didn't list a cause for the outages. However, parts of the province had been experiencing heavy rain and winds.
