I hope all is well with our North East members after Storm Arwen. I was living in the South east back in 1987 when we had a similar storm. What I remember was the help from Northern and Scottish electricity board crews who travelled right down South to help with the recovery. So far, I haven't heard of anything similar happening now, or am I mistaken?

Daughter lives in the lakes, no power for 7 days ! we visited and did a tour around, the number of trees down is staggering and of course to damage to power lines the same. There were crews form several different utility areas so yes they had been drafted in. Its clear a huge amount of clearing tree debris needed clearing which is very time consuming but requires doing before power lines can be reinstated.

We went to the John Muir Trust at Dunbar and it looked like the Philippines after a typhoon
70% of trees were uprooted, 10% of those that had resisted being uprooted had their tops snapped clean off
The wind was still really howling there and yet in Edinburgh it was only a stiff breeze
The noise that night must have been unbelievable
