The power has been knocked out again in the Highway 12 area south of Kentville.

According to Nova Scotia Power, 119 customers in the communities of Highbury, North Alton, South Alton, Welton Landing, Forest Home, Murphy Lake, Blue Mountain, Aldersville, Casey Corner, Canaan, Prospect, Mcgee Lake, Lake George, Lake Paul, Parker Meadows and East Dalhousie are without electricity.

The estimated restoration time is 4:30 p.m.

After a second ice storm in a week, Nova Scotia Power had more than 1,000 customers without power Dec. 30. Some households were without electricity for 12 to 16 hours. In that case, the regional emergency management office arranged for a "warming centre" to be set up at the Kentville fire hall, staffed by the Red Cross. No one needed to take the fire department up on their offer and the lights were back on by morning.
