Nicosia hit by strong winds

Several areas in Nicosia briefly went without electricity on Thursday after powerful gusts swept tree branches onto power cables.

A spokesperson for the Electricity Authority said 17 different areas were affected, although in most cases the power cuts were localised to a few residences or streets.

The fire service meanwhile responded to about 10 incidents of trees being uprooted by the strong winds.

Two vehicles were damaged by flying debris.

The Met Service said wind force reached 4 to 5 on the Beaufort scale.
