THE Fiji Electricity Authority (FEA) has been working tirelessly to restore power to areas affected by the flood.

Chief executive officer Hasmukh Patel in a statement said they had on Thursday been able to successfully restore power to 99.5 per cent of the affected areas in the Western Division.

He said customers whose electrical installations were submerged under flood waters were requested to engage the services of registered electrical contractors before FEA was able to connect the installation to the grid.

"Our teams in the field have been very busy with restoration efforts, and in many times under challenging circumstances. Our contact centre teams were inundated with calls as they tried their level best to keep individual customers informed," Mr Patel said.

"Many of our customers demanded instant connection which was not possible due to safety measures," he said.
