People from across the Maritimes, eastern Quebec and southwestern Newfoundland are feeling low as the economic impact of storm Fiona's wrath is still being tallied.

Power is still out for 266,000 homes and businesses throughout Atlantic Canada.

At the height of the storm on Saturday, more than 500-thousand were in the dark, including 80 per cent of customers in Nova Scotia and 90 per cent of those in PEI.

Even as crews work around the clock, some utility companies warn that it could be several days before the lights come back on.
