ADVERSE WEATHER CAUSES POWER ISSUES AND TREE DAMAGE

ADVERSE WEATHER CAUSES POWER ISSUES AND TREE DAMAGE

By J. Brock (FINN)

Due to the adverse weather conditions a number of overhead lines were brought down in the Stanley area. The majority of these lines are connected to street lighting and to Sure’s phone lines.

Mains power supplies are generally unaffected, however there are four known properties to the east of Snake Hill that are currently without power - it is hoped that the power will be restored to those properties this afternoon.

Repairs are on-going, however priority will be given to ensuring mains power to properties. However it is likely that a significant amount of street lighting will remain off tonight, and these will be repaired as soon as possible over the coming days.

Another danger during windy and wet weather is the incidence of huge tree branches falling from trees. There was an incidence of this at Stanley House on John Street on Wednesday morning. Emergency services responded immediately and cleared the branch(es) from John Street before school started.
