(CNS) Updated with CUC statement: Christmas lunch was in question for many families on Wednesday when power outages across George Town and parts of Bodden Town disrupted preparations and the holidayfestivities. CUC officials said various areas were affected across the capital and out as far as Savannah and Newlands. The power firm confirmed that power was restored by 11am to all customers after the blackout began at around 9am on Christmas morning. Crews worked to restore power  as quickly as possible, a CUC spokesperson said Wednesday afternoon, adding that the problem was due to a loss of some generation which caused outages to pockets of customers around the Island.

The firm said that a full investigation in the festive outage is now underway and CUC will issue more details on Friday.
