Thousands are still dealing with power outages from the Apr. 5 storm.

For those without power in Montreal’s Pierrefonds on the West Island, the Red Cross is operating a warming shelter at Pierrefonds Community High School.

People can spend the night or just use the facilities, WiFi and more amid the power outages.

Meghan Lang-Sabourin has been staying at her grandparent’s home since the ice storm because her home hasn’t had power. On Monday, she was in the gym of PCHS, working on her laptop.

“I have school projects that needs to be done for this week and I could use the internet here since I have none at home,” she said.

Like many, Lang-Sabourin is patiently waiting for power to be restored and has one hope.

“That it comes back soon.”

Her message to those who got power back or who never lost it: “Be thankful, a good amount of people that are struggling without power.”
