Storm Doris dumps snow, rain and causes power cuts to the region
This evening many homes across County Durham and the North East are experiencing power cuts. This is in part to the terrible weather that the UK has been experiencing in the last 24 hours. As storm Doris heads into the North Sea it leaves behind a trail of destruction.
Here at Durham Electrics we have experienced a high volume of calls for an emergency electrician. Sometimes it isn't always necessary to call for an electrician especially if the fault is due to the main power grid. Did you know that Northern Powergrid have a dedicated free telephone number for you to check reported power cuts. 105 is the number that you should now be saving into your phones. If you have charge on a mobile you can always check the dedicated website page (link below).
Be a savvy consumer and check the obvious before having to dip your hand into your pocket for a call out fee.
