10.30pm POWER UPDATE – 100 homes around Lower Portland still without power tonight
Around 100 homes are still without power as repair work finishes for tonight, mainly along River Road at Lower Portland, as well as other isolated areas nearby.
Endeavour Energy tells us fresh crews will be at these locations early tomorrow morning to have power back to customers as soon as possible.
The power company say crews have worked hard since first light today to restore power to almost all customers impacted by last night’s destructive storm.
Hundreds of fallen trees have been removed and damaged poles and power lines repaired to safely restore supply to almost 5000 homes and business, Endeavour's spokesman told the Post.
Endeavour Energy say they would like to thank those customers who have waited patiently while repairs were completed.
“We appreciate their understanding, especially those whose supply has been interrupted multiple times in the past three days by adverse weather conditions,” said a spokesman.
