Power Restored For Some Aareas

Tropical Cyclone Winston has affected the entire Fiji Group and power supply had been cut to entire Viti Levu, Labasa, Savusavu and Ovalau.

With the weather clearing up yesterday, FEA staff who were able to report to work at the various stations and started patrolling and inspecting the power lines and the power system at large.

FEA had been able to secure the services of a helicopter to survey the main transmission line, but bad weather up the hills restricted the traversing too far.

In the meantime, diesel generators at Kinoya and Labasa are supplying power to areas where the power lines are intact and/or repair works are completed.

The following areas below have been energised last night. The FEA wishes to remind the public to treat all broken power lines as live and to exercise appropriate precaution by staying away and keeping others away from all broken power lines.
