Around 9pm on Tuesday 24th October a landslide occurred on the Airor road at Soldiers Rock, just above Scottas/Glaschoille. The slip took out a section of the power line which in turn tripped the hydro system, and a significant section of the road has been washed downhill making it impassable by vehicle.
The road is currently blocked off on both sides and damage assessments are taking place - PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE THROUGH THIS AREA.
Thanks to the exemplary efforts of the community power and internet access has quickly been restored with the exception of Glaschoille and the broadband mast. The mast is currently working on generator so outages are likely given the difficulty in refuelling and maintenance due to limited road access.
