The ESB says that less than 100 customers are affected by power outages this afternoon which were caused by last night’s high winds.

At one stage more than 4,000 homes and businesses were without power after the county was battered by winds of up to 100kph. Power lines across Donegal were brought down by the gusts.

Letterkenny and Killybegs were the worst affected parts of the county.

But by late afternoon power had been restored to the vast majority of customers, with most of those still affected in Gweedore and Buncrana.

An ESB spokesman said timber repair crews were working on the remaining calls and power is expected to be restored to all customers by tonight.
