Date&time/incident/area

Tuesday 12 March:  two disruptions-

3-5pm. Electricity cut in Buenavista del Norte. Areas affected:

8am-midday. Electricity cut in Güímar. Areas affected:

Thursday 14 February: 9.15am-midday. Electricity cut in Playa de las Américas. Areas affected: Calle Antonio Domínguez.

Friday 18 January: As forecast yesterday (see HERE), the weather has turned and brought wind and some rain which has turned to snow at altitude. Although Teide isn’t as white as we might have expected – that may yet be to come – there has been a considerable amount of ice on the road through the caldera and so all access roads are currently closed. This is likely to be repeated several times over the next few days and possibly weeks so before going up into the National Park it’s best to check the Cabildo’s real-time map of the situation on the roads here. The map is HERE.

Friday 11 January: 10am-midday. Water cut in Tejina de Isora. Areas affected: whole village.
