Severe Weather Warning: Heavy rain and strong winds

The Met Office Yellow and Amber weather warnings for north Wales, northern England and central and southern Scotland are still in place.   

Tuesday 23 February 2021: An Amber national severe weather warning has been issued for parts of central and southern Scotland, where rain accumulations of up to 120mm could be reached over Tuesday and Wednesday. Gusts of up to 70mph are expected.

Wednesday 24 February 2021: Amber and Yellow weather warnings are in place. Persistent wet weather may lead to flooding in some areas in Scotland and north Wales.

Adverse weather can impact parts of the electricity network as localised damage and debris and some flooding is expected. We have extra engineers and call centre staff in place to support restoration efforts as well as deal with any queries you may have.

If you have a powercut call 105 to report it and we'll keep you updated by text or voice alert messaging whilst our engineers are working to restore your power.
