Energex 10:30am Power Update We're currently experiencing technical issues with our website and we're working on fixing it as soon as possible. In the interim, here is the latest information about restoration efforts in South East Queensland:
- 200,000 without power
- 1,200 fallen powerlines (2,000 in the last 24 hours)
- Some areas may be without power until tomorrow, and in some
- No specific restoration times for individual areas.
Today's priority is repairing the 'backbone' of the electricity network to restore power to as many people as possible. Our crews are continuing to restore power across South East Queensland, however, dangerous conditions, flooded roadways and other access issues are delaying restoration work. We will continue working day and night until all power is restored.
