Western Power warn of extended delays
Western Power warn of extended delays

Western Power is asking residents to call only to report safety hazards as more than 100,000 homes and businesses remain without power following yesterday’s storm.

Bunbury, Australind, Eaton and Mandurah are in the ten worst affected suburbs by power outages and residents have been warned they may be without power for several days.

Western Power has asked people to be patient and to consider relocating to homes of family and friends.

“Western Power's first priority is to find and attend to any safety hazards,” a Western Power spokesperson said.

“However, bad weather continues to make work difficult for our crews and storms are expected to continue this week through the South West.

Small pockets of the network have been restored where there are no safety hazards but much of the restoration work can only occur after areas have been assessed to ensure they are safe to re-energise.”

Members of the public are urged to stay away from fallen power lines and to report hazards to 13 13 51.
