More than 200 homes in and around Stowmarket have been left without power this morning following problems with an overhead electricity line fault.
A Met Office yellow-level warning came into force at 9pm last night, which will remain in place until 3pm this afternoon.
UK Power Networks is currently investigating a power cut affecting some homes in the IP1, IP6, IP9 and IP14 areas.
Engineers have arrived on the scene to fix the fault.
"Specialist engineers are also working to divert power remotely, and this can cause your lights to go on and off," said UK Power Networks on its website.
"We'll update you with all of our progress but if you need to speak to us, call our team on 0800 3163105 any time."
