St. Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) crews have restored power to seventy-five percent of customers who lost power during Tropical Storm Bret.

“Most of the power outages were caused by numerous instances of damage to power lines by trees, branches, and wind gusts causing feeders to trip,” LUCELEC noted.
