MONTREAL — About 4,000 Quebec households are still without electricity today after power outages caused by freezing rain Sunday.

More than 150,000 people lost power in blackouts that primarily hit the Montreal area.

Hydro-Quebec said 4,259 households remained without power as of noon today.

Many roads and sidewalks throughout the province remain treacherous, while there is still considerable ice buildup on tree branches and power lines.

The snow and freezing rain also caused at least 100 traffic accidents, including one in which a young woman was killed.
