Spotter helicopters are searching the North Yorkshire Moors and parts of County Durham to find snow-damaged power lines which have left hundreds cut off.
Engineers have restored the power to approximately 78,000 properties in the North East and Yorkshire since power cuts struck on Tuesday night, but more than 1,000 homes remain without power.
Northern Powergrid said the number of properties still without power now stands at 1,700.
Engineers are on site throughout the area and the spotter helicopter is being deployed once again to help locate the damaged overhead power lines."
