Shetland Islands: Undersea Damaged Cables Affect Scotland Forcing Power Outages

Date:

Bangladesh experienced multiple power outages as a result of power being pumped into Ukraine. Now undersea cables off of Shetland Island have been damaged. What in the world is going on!?

“Police have declared a major incident after the south subsea cable between the islands and the mainland was cut.

The force said some landlines and mobiles were not usable and that officers were patrolling to try to reassure residents.

Repairs to another cable connecting Shetland and Faroe are ongoing after it was damaged last week. 

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said it was an emergency situation for the island.

The Scottish government’s resilience committee had met and was working with partner agencies to ensure support was provided, she added.

She said the assumption was the damage was accidental, adding: “There is nothing to suggest otherwise, but work is continuing to assess exactly what the cause of the problem has been.”
