Power restored after mass outage on Sunshine Coast

UPDATE: Power has been restored to hundreds of homes after powerlines came down across the central region of the Sunshine Coast. Energex has stated on its website that power has been restored to almost 2000 homes since homes were blacked out since about 1pm.

The outage was due to powerlines falling down.

There are still 44 homes in Kuluin without power. Energex are investigating

 

EARLIER: MORE than 2000 homes are without power this afternoon after powerlines came down in the central region of the Sunshine Coast.

Bli Bli and Maroochydore are the worst affected suburbs with more than 1000 people in each suburb losing power about 1pm.

A few hundred homes at Kuluin, Rosemount and Diddillibah have also lost power.

Main Rd at Kuluin near Tallow Wood Rd is closed to traffic as Energex works to remove fallen lines from the road.

Energex are making repairs to lines across the area to fix the problem.
