Storm Brendan Update

13/01/2020
NIE Networks are currently working to repair damage to the electricity network caused by Storm Brendan

The high winds and adverse weather brought by Storm Brendan throughout this morning have
caused a low level of damage to the electricity network with some customers experiencing power cuts as a
result.

The NIE Networks Incident Centres have been operational from early morning and our teams have been out
working to repair any damage caused and restore power as quickly as possible. At present
approximately 4000 customers are without power.

We are particularly keen to remind the public to maintain safety around any damaged electricity equipment
and never approach a broken pole or electricity line.

We would like advise customers that if they should experience a power cut they can report the fault online
at www.nienetworks.co.uk or call the NIE Networks Customer Helpline on 03457 643 643. Customers can
also follow us on social media for regular updates.

Further updates will be issued as the weather situation unfolds
