NIE working to restore power after storms

Lightning Armagh

Widespread powers cuts are being experienced across the area after a major thunderstorm.

Incessant thunder and lightning followed days of mid-2os temperature.

The picture was taken from Drumbreda, showing lightning over the Stony Lonan.

The result has led to many homes and businesses being left in the dark.

NIE is working hard to restore power to numerous areas.

Hundreds of homes are without electricity and it could be sometime before all are reconnected.

Among the areas affected are Armagh city, Markethill, Tassagh, Hamiltonsbawn, Tandragee, Culloville, Newtownhamilton and Craigavon.

Temperatures, meanwhile, are to remain high throughout the day and there is the potential for further weather incidents.
