Energy network operators issue safety advice for Storm Isha

19 January 2024

Great Britain’s energy network operators have issued safety advice as two amber weather warnings and several yellow weather warnings have been issued by the Met Office in response to Storm Isha.

 

 A spokesperson for Energy Networks Association, which represents Britain's energy network operators, said: 

"An amber warning brings an increased risk of damage to homes and vital infrastructure. Energy network operators are preparing to deal with any damage quickly and safely.

"With severe weather forecast, our advice to customers is to prepare, care and share. Prepare by going online to PowerCut105.com for advice and call 105 for free if you have a power cut. Check in with people who might need extra help, and share this information so friends and family know what to do too.

"If you see damaged power lines or lines brought down over the coming days, stay well clear and call 105 for free to report it, or dial 999 if there’s an immediate danger to life."
