According to Toronto Hydro, last night's outage was caused by an issue with Hydro One's (the province's electricity transmission utility) transmission equipment in the west end of the city.

The outage lasted approximately two hours; by 11:00 pm, Hydro One had repaired the issue with its equipment, and power was restored to the approximately 120,000 customers affected.

The outage extended from roughly Yonge Street west to Mississauga, and Lawrence Avenue south to Dupont Street.
