About 800 Hydro-Québec employees are still hard at work trying to restore electricity to customers affected by a power outage on Friday.

The lights went out for 120,000 customers when a storm dumped about 50 centimetres of snow in some areas.

As of 8 p.m. Monday night, about 11,600 customers were still without power, mainly in the Laurentians and the Outaouais region of western Quebec.
