According to Barbados Light and Power (BL&P) Manager of Communication and Government Relations Jackie Marshall- Clarke customers in St Philip, particularly Union, Woodbourne and Welches are still without power. Electricity was cut in those areas after a poll fell in the Crane around 12.30 p.m. yesterday.
Marshall- Clarke also told Barbados TODAY, a fallen poll in Sturges, St Thomas had disrupted electricity service in that parish along with St Joseph and St Andrew. She noted that power was being gradually restored to those communities.
She stressed that the BL&P was tackling the issue “case by case”, noting that has additional crews have been despatched to affected areas.
“We apologise for the inconvenience to our customers who experienced no supply and as always we continue our efforts to restore as quickly and as safely as possible,” Marshall-Clarke assured.
