Landslide hampers T&TEC following outage from Maracas to Blanchissuese

Friday, December 29, 2017 - 11:30

The Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) says it is aware that several communities along the North Coast Road are without electricity at this time but is hampered by the landslide that occurred this morning.

T&TEC customers from Maracas to Blanchissuese are without electricity.

T&TEC says it is experiencing difficulty accessing the area due to the landslide near the Maracas lookout.

However, the utility says it is utilising an alternative route through Arima to reach the affected areas to determine the cause of the outage.

T&TEC says that as soon as the assessment is done, it will begin work to restore electricity in the shortest possible time.
