Belco: All mainline circuits restored


Belco has now restored all its mainline circuits, with the total number of customers still without power down to 2,089.

Priority is now being given to circuits affecting schools, in preparation for tomorrow morning, according to a spokeswoman.

Earlier today, more than 15,000 people were without power. At 9pm the breakdown of numbers left in the dark were: Devonshire, 917; Hamilton, 65; Paget, 131; Pembroke, 27; Sandys, 67; Smith’s, 621; Southampton, 102; St George’s, 13; Warwick, 146.

“Crews are continuing restoration efforts tonight with a focus on restoring branch line and small pocket outages,” said the spokeswoman.

“They will be stood down by midnight in order to get some rest overnight and return refreshed for continued restoration first thing in the morning.

“Belco has been asked on Facebook to provide ETA’s for restoration in specific areas. We obviously would very much like to do so, but unfortunately this is not possible.

“We will, however, continue to provide regular updates through the media and on our Facebook page and Twitter.

“We would like to thank our customers for all of the positive messages of support for our team that are being sent through and more so for the continued patience of those customers still without power. We will continue to work diligently to restore power as quickly and safely as possible.”
