Some in T&T still without power

By Trinidad Express

There are still parts of Trinidad and Tobago without power this morning.

And crews are out working to restore the electricity supply knocked out during the passage of Tropical Storm Karen.

In Trinidad, T&TEC has 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, according to a statement from T&TEC.
