Windy Conditions Cause Power Outages

January 8, 2016

[Updated] The Island has experienced some power outages due to the current weather conditions, and BELCO said that of 4:05pm, 753 customers are without power.

A BELCO spokesperson said, “As a result of current weather conditions, the Island has experienced sporadic outages throughout the day. Most outages have been restored within a very short time.

“As of 4:05PM, 753 customers are currently without power, the majority of which are located in the area feeding from a circuit on Point Finger Road.

“We anticipate a busy evening given the weather and BELCO crews will continue to respond to power outages as they occur.”

The high winds have impacted the ferry service, put the Paget stop lights out of order, and reportedly resulted in a woman being “blown off” her cycle. You can view all our coverage of the matter here.
