Power has been restored to tens of thousands of Nova Scotians after the latest storm-related blackout in the province this winter.

Nova Scotia Power says the vast majority of the 22,000 customers who were affected by outages on Saturday morning are back on the grid.

The utility says wet, heavy snow from a storm Friday caused tree branches to touch or even pull down power lines.

They say about 120 technicians across the province have been working to end the blackouts.
