The lights started coming on for many of the 16,000 Ottawa Valley residents early this morning following a massive power outage that engulfed much of the Highway 60 corridor and surrounding areas. The outages were first reported in Eganville and Bonnechere Valley about 3:15 Monday afternoon and spread to Pembroke, Wilno, Round Lake, Highway 41, and the Ottawa River- including Westmeath and Beechburg. Power slowly returned shortly after 5:00 o’clock Tuesday morning.
