There are still hundreds of homes in the Machars without power today (Monday, March 25).

Approximately 300 homes in the surrounding areas are still without any electricity.

They are at: Drummore, the Clashwhannon Hotel, 11am-11pm; Port William, the Monreith Arms, all day; and Whithorn, South Machars Community Centre, 6pm-9pm.

If you know anyone who might be stranded in their home, please contact them to make sure they are well and tell them about the rest centres.
