SLAND WIDE POWER OUTAGE BELCO WORKING TO RESTORE POWER
The Minister of National Security, the Hon. Renee Ming advised this morning that the Disaster Risk Reduction Mitigation (DRRM) Team is currently monitoring the island wide power outage.
Minister Ming said, "Our Ministry has been in contact with Belco regarding the outage and they are working tirelessly to restore power.
"I have also been in contact our key stakeholders such as the Airport, the Bermuda Police Service, the Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service and the Bermuda Hospital Board and have been assured that their emergency services are operational.
"We recognise that the public are rightly anxious and concerned and we want to assure all of Bermuda that we're working with all major relevant partners to get power back on line. I am asking the public to please not call the 9-11 line unless it's a severe emergency. We are also asking commuters and motorists to exercise caution on our roads as there are traffic lights that are inoperable. I encourage and thank the public for their patience and cooperation during this time."
The Ministry will keep the public updated as matters develop.
