ESB cuts off power supply in some flood areas

Several hundred households are without power this evening after the ESB was forced to cut off power because of safety concerns.

A spokesperson for the company said the move was necessitated by rapidly rising water levels.

Power has been cut off in some parts of Bandon, Cork city and east Galway.

ESB crews are in the area and the power will be switched back on as soon as the water levels subside.
