Storm Arwen Recovery – Community Update

Storm Arwen caused a huge amount of damage across the northern United Kingdom, including to power networks, with more than a million properties losing power at some stage during the event from Scotland to the Midlands. In the Electricity North West area, over 117,000 properties were left without power, with the majority of those in Cumbria. There were also a significant number of roads blocked by snow and fallen trees, along with damage to properties, cars and other infrastructure such as broadband, landlines and mobile phone masts.
