Final power faults being repaired

Less than 160 homes and businesses in the mid Ulster and South East areas of Northern Ireland remain without power following Storm Ali.

The remaining faults require significant work and resources involving tree cutting, traffic management and overhead lines teams.
We anticipate all remaining customers who were affected by Storm Ali will be restored overnight.
A spokesperson for NIE Networks, said, “We are grateful for the patience of all of the customers who lost power due to Storm Ali. The storm’s strong gusts, combined with trees still in leaf, caused considerable damage to the electricity network and left us with faults which were time consuming and labour intensive to repair.
“Our teams will continue to work through the night until the last customer has power restored.”
