Update: At around 6:06am a second power outage occurred.
If you are waking up due to a missed early morning wakeup alarm, then it should be known that a brief overnight power disruption across some parts of Salford left house alarms ringing and circuit breakers tripped.
The later being especially unfortunate if they happen to be the ones which control power to your fridge/freezer as was the case in my home.
I would urge you to check that your fridges and freezers are powered as soon as you awake this morning so as to avoid food spoiling.
Flickering lights and reset electrical devices were reported by people across a range of areas including Walkden, Little Hulton, Swinton and Eccles.
It is unclear as to what caused the brief outage but this is just the latest in a number of similar instances to occur over a period of the last few months.
In late January 79 properties were left without power and in the previous December, 90 homes were left in the dark for hours after disruptions to their supplies, to name a few..
Residents across Salford have reported power fluctuations and unstable supply for several months on our community Facebook Group - SalfordOnline.
We have contacted Electricity Northwest for comment.
