T&TEC restoration continues after bad weather

Crews from the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) are continuing work from overnight, responding to outages triggered as a result of the adverse weather conditions experienced. Overhead lines and other infrastructure have been damaged mainly due to trees and branches felled by the high winds.

This is according to a T&TEC release which says that the largest affected area is on the north coast- La Fillette, Maracas, Las Cuevas and Blanchisseuse.

Smaller outages also exist on singular streets in Belmont, Maracas, Laventille, Diego Martin, Tamana, Claxton Bay and Brasso Seco.

Allandale Settlement in Cumana and Flagstaff, Charlotteville are also affected.

The release noted that on Santa Barbra St in Maracas, St Joseph, some customers have already been restored but additional tree trimming work is required to restore all customers.

It said overnight, crews restored supply to over 25 communities between 10:00 PM and 5:00 AM.

Additional Crews are currently being redeployed to northwest Trinidad to assist with restoration.

T&TEC thanked affected customers for their patience as we work to restore their supply in the quickest possible time.
