Whilst the BBC have reported fault details on the individual transmitter page, they have NOT (yet?) added it to a page which is an engineering list of Freeview faults which is where the updates to this site come from.

In the weather conditions that have been prevalent, finding information about when such faults may be fixed, especially if it's due to a power outage will frequently be dependant on accessibility to the fault and the weather prevailing at the time, which may of course be very imprecise.
