Final update at 4.15pm on 19 September:
Our crews have been working hard to restore the electricity supply to affected communities, with all area faults now fixed and power to all customers restored.
Over the past two days, 25+ large area outages have been resolved and over 500 individual properties have been attended to. Our focus is now on other jobs, such as the restoration of streetlight circuits and repairing damage to our electricity network assets.
If you're still without power, please contact your electricity retailer as we might not otherwise be aware of the issue. If you're medically dependent, follow your emergency response plan and contact your health practitioner if not having electricity puts you at risk of harm.
If you become aware of anything you think might be an electrical hazard, phone our emergency line on 0800 248 148. Treat all lines and electrical equipment as live at all times.
