BL&P working to restore power after fallen trees cause St John outage

The Barbados Light & Power Company has been working in Wilson Hill, St. John since yesterday evening.

A large tree fell just before 7 p.m. on December 12 causing several other trees to fall as well.  Their fall damaged a section of our high voltage line, which has left several customers in the surrounding communities of Venture, Mount Tabor, Sherbourne and others without electricity.

Work has started to restore power to the affected residents following the clearing of the trees and road by personnel from the Ministry of Public Works.

Three crews are on site and they will work safely to restore power as quickly as possible.

The Barbados Light & Power Company Limited wishes to apologise for the inconvenience caused to customers affected by this incident.
