Hydro customers in southwestern Ontario have received an unwelcome reminder of the biggest blackout in North American history.

Hydro One says nearly 14-thousand customers in the Lambton County area were affected by a large power outage yesterday afternoon -- exactly 14 years after 50-million people in Ontario and the northeastern and midwestern U-S were hit by a blackout that in some areas lasted for two days.

Nearly three-thousand Entegrus customers in Strathroy were also impacted.

Hydro One said the service disruption was caused after a tractor struck a transmission line and power was expected to be restored by 8:30 p-m last night.
