Over 1,000 People Have No Power Thanks To The Approach Of Storm Diana


Over 1,000 people are without electricity in Dublin today due to the stormy weather.

People in Dundrum, Sutton, Rathgar and Glasthule are experiencing outages.

The ESB has apologised for the interruption in supply and are working to restore power to those affected as soon as possible.

“We apologise for the loss of supply. We are currently working to repair a fault affecting your premises and will restore power as quickly as possible.”

Torrential rain and gale force winds have battered the capital all morning as Storm Diana approaches from the Atlantic.

The worst has yet to come, however, with possible status orange weather warnings issued tomorrow as Storm Diana makes landfall.

A new yellow warning extended to all counties was issued a little while ago by Met Éireann.

The warning is currently valid from tomorrow at 05:00 to tomorrow at 16:00. but this could be subject for change.

If you need to report a fault with the ESB, you can call phone 1850 372 999.
