Power has been restored to thousands of homes in Dumfries and Galloway but 3,000 homes are yet to be reconnected. Power was lost in Garlieston, Port William, Sorbie, Whithorn and Drummore and Isle of Whithorn on Friday following heavy snow and high winds.
Scottish Power says 200 engineers are working to reconnect those areas. Dumfries and Galloway Council have supplied generators to some of the affected parts of the region and are working to get provisions into those places.
Many major routes in Dumfries and Galloway are now open following closures on Friday and Saturday but many minor routes are only passable with care. Police are still advising drivers to only go out if necessary.
