FORCE TEN gusts brought some Isle of Wight ferry services to a halt last night (Thursday), while many homes in Newport were left without power due to a fault.
*A Southern Electric spokesman said an overhead line in the Newport area was brought down by high winds at 9.17pm.
Most homes had power restored last night, however 58 properties were without electricity for the duration of the repairs, which were not completed until 7.02am.
The Met Office warned earlier this week that there could be more bad weather to come over the weekend.
