BEL Power System Update – 3:30pm Nov 2 2022
BEL thanks the public for reporting any electrical and safety hazards they may be witnessing.
Please remember to STAY AWAY from fallen power lines!
If you experience a power outage due to damage from Hurricane Lisa, please rest assured that BEL will dispatch its teams to conduct repairs and restore power WHEN IT IS SAFE TO DO SO.
The power system has protective devices that activate automatically to shut off power when lightning or tree branches make contact with power lines.
If the situation is too dangerous, BEL will disconnect power supply to the wider area connected to the transformer or power distribution section. These devices are safety mechanisms that protect both the power supply system and customers’ equipment.
Please report any fallen or damaged power lines to BEL by calling toll free 0.800.BEL.CARE or 0.800.235.2273 or message us on Facebook or WhatsApp. We ask for your patience if our phone lines and communication channels become busy during emergencies while our teams respond to customer reports.
We are also providing updates and safety guidelines via our BEL 24-7 App, SMS, Facebook and Instagram pages, and on radio and television.
