Those who remain without power and those who lost power for a significant amount of time have some tough choices to make. 

When deciding what to throw out from fridges and freezers, those unsure can refer to a food safety guide provided by the Nova Scotia government.

The up-to-date link on what to toss can be found here.

Another safety issue following heavy storms relates to flooding.

The NS website reads "flood water may carry silt, raw sewage, oil or chemical waste. Food may become unsafe to eat if it comes in contact with contaminated flood water."

If flooding has occurred within your area, refer to the full guide on the website located here.
