T&TEC is advising citizens their restoration efforts following Tropic Storm Karen is underway.
The release continues:
“In Trinidad we have restored supply to customers in most affected areas, with one outstanding report in Toco and another in Blanchisseuse, which we expect to resolve this morning.
In Tobago, supply was restored overnight to customers on the northside of the island, up to Castara, and on the windward side ( East) from John Dial to Richmond. Customers who are fed from Studley Park are still off supply as that job requires more effort. Crews will have to replace infrastructure on individual poles, which are off the main thoroughfare, and additional equipment and manpower must be added to relieve the workers who have been working non-stop from the previous shifts.
At this time personnel from Trinidad are waiting on flights to Tobago and some will be on the boat later today with trucks.
Updates will be provided during the day as necessary”.
