Breaking News Today – 10,000 Brisbane Homes Without Power
More than 10,000 homes in Brisbane remain without power following a severe storm that hit the region on Saturday night. The lightning knocked down powerlines in the southern and eastern suburbs and caused outages in Brisbane, the Gold Coast and other parts of Queensland. Energex said around 15,000 homes lost their power – mostly in the city’s north side and western suburbs, but also in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
The outage was caused by a large explosion at a power station near Biloela. It affected hundreds of thousands of homes and businesses across the south-east and central parts of the state. The outage lasted for more than eight hours, but authorities quickly restored power to about 300,000 buildings, and are increasing power from other power stations. While there are still no details of who is responsible for the widespread outage, the callide power station was suspected of being the cause of the outages.
The company’s spokesperson says the outage is widespread and started at 2.30pm. “We have experienced several blackouts around the city. It’s been the largest outage in their history,” he says. Some suburbs are seeing power come back, but it’s still not enough to keep people safe. The outages also caused multiple crashes in Brisbane’s Chermside and Aspley areas.
While a small number of customers were impacted by the outage, it affected dozens of major areas of the city. Schools, hospitals and shopping centres were closed for a time while power was restored. The emergency response was aimed at helping residents cope with the outage. In the meantime, the state’s premier, Annastacia Palaszczuk, says the outage is temporary and will cause no long-term damage to the economy.
The outage has affected more than half of the state. Power is still out in Brisbane, but some parts of the city are still without power. While the power outage has affected many areas, the broader issue is one of safety. At this stage, it’s still unclear how long the outage will last. It’s unclear whether Energex will be able to restore all power, but there’s no reason to think it won’t come back, despite the widespread damage.
The outage is affecting some areas of the city, including Brisbane. CS Energy has confirmed that train services are unaffected, although some businesses in the city were plunged into darkness. Some employees remained stuck in lifts as they couldn’t get outside to take care of their families. This means that a few people in the city have to go without power for a few hours. Even the airport is in a state of emergency.
The outage has affected more than 37,000 homes and businesses in Brisbane and surrounding areas. The outage has impacted the entire region, including the Gold Coast. Ergon Energy has confirmed that it has inspected the power plant and will be reviewing it to determine the cause. Some customers are still without power in the affected areas. However, residents should conserve energy to avoid further problems. These outages are affecting a large portion of the city.
The outage has impacted most of south-east Queensland. According to Ergon Energy, more than 107,000 homes are still without power in southeast Queensland. Meanwhile, three thousand homes are still without power in the city. Affected areas include Gladstone, Townsville and Cairns. The outage has affected dozens of traffic lights throughout the state. In addition to Brisbane, it has also affected the cities in south-east Queensland.
The outage has also affected residents in southern-east Queensland. Some of the affected areas are Cairns, Townsville, Mackay and Gladstone, where 10,000 homes were affected. There was also a 15-minute outage at the international terminal of Brisbane airport. The problem has caused a 550-meter exclusion zone. The fire has affected all of southeast Queensland. Currently, there are about three thousand homes without power in the Gold Coast.
The outage has affected about 250,000 people in Queensland, including the Gold Coast. A fire at a coal-fired power station near the city has forced the power company to shut down three generators and evacuate the surrounding areas. Approximately 500,000 people in the city are affected, but more than 70,000 people live in the nearby town of Tweed Heads. Some residents have lost their homes in Tweed Heads.
