Hydro Ottawa says equipment-related issues are to blame for knocking out power to more than 1,000 customers in Ottawa.

Crews responded to a power outage in the area of Lycee Place, Riverside Drive and Frobisher Lane just after 6 p.m. on Saturday.

A total of 1,349 customers were affected by the outage. 

The utility says the cause of the power outage is equipment related. Crews are "performing emergency switching" to restore service to customers Saturday evening.

By 7 a.m. Sunday, just under 200 customers remained without power. Hydro Ottawa estimated it would have power fully restored by 4 p.m.
