A little over 9,000 households were still without power at noon on Sunday after a major storm hit Western Estonia on Saturday.
Power network operator Elektrilevi said that 9,162 clients did not have power on Sunday morning, with outages reported all over Estonia, except in Hiiumaa and Valga and Lääne counties the power supply of which is the responsibility of Imatra Elekter.
Storm winds that hit Estonia on Saturday caused extensive power outages almost all over the country, Elektrilevi's press representative said, adding that teams worked throughout the night to fix 70 medium voltage and 36 low voltage issues.
Elektrilevi has fixed a total of almost 200 outages over the past 24 hours, restoring power to 27,539 clients.
Rapla County (2,422), Jõgeva County (2,040) and Pärnu County (1,604) have the most people for whom power has not been restored yet.
Clients in Harju, Põlva, Valga, Viljandi, Võru counties and Saaremaa can look forward to power returning on Sunday, while work will probably continue into Monday in other areas.
The storm that hit on Saturday morning caused the most power outages in Hiiumaa where two power lines were put out of commission simultaneously, leaving over 7,000 clients in the dark. That said, outages in Hiiumaa were dealt with very quickly.
At the peak of the storm, there were over 34,000 households without power.
