"We needed to turn off supplies at about midday to safely repair some electrical equipment which was damaged in high winds.

"We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and engineers are working hard to reconnect all supplies."

Power is estimated to return before 2.30pm.

The weather has also forced the police to activate Operation Stack.
