Extreme winds hit the Canadian province of Ontario and affected more than 280,000 homes and businesses into darkness, utility Hydro One said on Saturday.

The Toronto-listed company, which supplies electricity to about 1.4 million customers across the province, said it expected more outages until the winds subsided.

The company said in a statement that the Hydro One expects customers in the hardest-hit areas to be without power overnight, including southern, central and eastern Ontario

"Significant damage has been reported, including broken poles, fallen trees and hazardous road conditions," it added, but did not elaborate.

Currently, power has been restored to 78,000 customers, about 210,000 still remain in darkness.
