Power restoration efforts continue

NIE Networks emergency crews continue to deal with around 500 faults on the network with around 1,400 customers still without power.

Almost half of those faults are affecting single customers. We have moved all available teams into the worst affected areas to speed up the restoration process.

A spokesperson for NIE Networks said, “We appreciate the understanding of our customers and would like to thank them for their patience. We are aiming to answer 100% of calls in person today and to keep customers up to date with progress.”

NIE Networks is reminding customers to never approach broken lines or damaged poles, and keep children and animals away - report damage to NIE Networks on ‪03457 643 643 and listen to recorded messages carefully
