LUCELEC restoring electricity to the north

bali_181The effects of the tropical wave on the power infrastructure of St. Lucia has been extensive as large portions of the country were without power for extended periods.

The latest bulletin issued by LUCELEC earlier this afternoon stated that power should be restored to the north of the island by 4pm with a few exceptions;

Portions of Ti Rocher due to a downed electrical pole in Cabiche, Babonneay and parts of Jeremie street where a damaged transformer will need to be replaced.

LUCLEC further stated that an advisory will be issued as soon as the downed electrical pole is removed.

The north of the island however was completely without power as the power company was forced to shut down the grid serving this area due to flooding at the Union sub-station.

The workmen for the power company has so far been hampered by heavy traffic and flooding in areas affected but are working to reach and repair damages to the company’s infrastructure as soon as possible.

St. Lucia has been under heavy rains due to a trough in the vicinity of the island which have lead to flooding and to the temporary closing of businesses and schools.
