The town of Badger lifted its state of emergency on Saturday morning.
The community declared a state of emergency on Thursday after a powerful winter-like storm moved into Newfoundland earlier in the week.
The town's water supply and electricity were affected by powerful winds. Most of the damage came from trees that broke down conductors after being uprooted.
Newfoundland Power tweeted that the mobile generator in Badger was working again on Friday, a little after 1 p.m. bringing back power to most customers in town.
More than 100 people were hard at work in central Newfoundland on restoration efforts. As of Thursday afternoon, about 30 cm had fallen in Badger.
Other areas in the province also reported quite a bit of snow. Gander saw 21 cm of snow as of Friday afternoon while Stephenville was covered by 14 cm.
