ENW restores power to 4,000 customers after Storm Gareth hits

Storm Gareth brought gales of 63mph along the coast and 57mph in North Cumbria and Lancashire overnight which caused around 19 faults on the network across the region.

Engineers worked through the night in difficult conditions to restore power to the majority of customers.

Chris Fox, incident manager for Electricity North West, said: “We were fully prepared for the disruption anticipated by Storm Gareth and we are always ready to respond to adverse weather conditions.

“We’re pleased that the network largely withstood the storm and I’m proud of our engineers working in difficult conditions to restore power to the majority of customers.

“At the moment it’s business as usual on the network, but we’re still closely monitoring the weather and our teams will be back out restoring power to the remaining customers as soon as possible.”
