Still no electricity for more than 24 hours for Benoît and the 160 inhabitants of the Gabourin district in François after the passage of hurricane Elsa, Friday July 2, 2021.
The incident was caused by the fall of a tree branch on a high voltage line. Once the installation has been repaired, EDF agents will also prune the surroundings. To avoid further damage.
See our report with Thierry Maisonneuve.
This Saturday morning (July 3, 2021) a crisis unit was held at the CTM to take stock of the damage caused by the passage of the storm, mostly due to falling trees.
The CTM calls on users to be extremely rigorous in anticipation of this new hurricane season.
