“We have brought extra staff in but it is difficult given the current conditions.
“It’s difficult to say when the power will be restored because the conditions are difficult but we are doing all that we can.
“I think it’s effecting most of Cornwall but possibly the southern half is worst affected.
“The major cause of the problem are the storms.
“We are doing as much as we can to restore the power as quickly as possible.”
The Met Office have issued amber warnings throughout Cornwall until Saturday with gale force winds and intermittent heavy rain.
