Ergon crews work to restore power after wild storm

ERGON Energy crews from Bundaberg, Gladstone, Biloela, Mackay, Rockhampton and Yeppoon worked to restore power after a wild storm lashed Rockhampton yesterday.

Power was initially interrupted to about 8800 customers.

About 300 customers remain without power due to network faults at 3.30pm with about 70 awaiting reconnection as damage to their individual service lines is repaired.

Ergon remains confident of reinstating the network today, however the volume of single fault calls that have come in during the day means any further calls logged this afternoon are unlikely to be attended until tomorrow morning.

Customers who do not have supply when power has been reinstated to their neighbours should call us as soon as possible on 13 22 96.

Customers who have damage to their installations or property are urged to contact an electrical contractor to carry any necessary repairs and then to arrange for Ergon to reconnect power.

Local and support crews will continue working tomorrow morning to clear the backlog of jobs, including some where there are no customer impacts.
