Power cut update, and MEA team leaves Island

Power should be restored to the remaining 54 homes without it in the Ronague area within the next hour (from 2pm, Thursday).

Originally 175 properties in the south of the Island were affected by the power cut, caused by an overhead line being brought down in the high winds.

Meanwhile, a team of MEA engineers managed to get off the Island this morning, to help Scottish Power reconnect the 17,000 homes hit by outages there.

They had originally been due to leave on the Ben-my-Chree yesterday evening, but the sailing was cancelled because of the gales.
