Officials will be hosting a media availability Wednesday to update the latest on Fiona damage and recovery efforts.

It's starts at 2:30 p.m.

Here in Halifax, most public school students are back in the classroom today. Only Atlantic View Elementary in Lawrencetown still didn't have power as of this morning, so that school remains closed Wednesday.

Nova Scotia Power says, as of 6 a.m., electricity has been restored to 96 per cent of customers in HRM.

For those who are still waiting for the lights to come on, there are still some comfort centres open.
