More than 200,000 homes and businesses throughout Sydney, the Central Coast and the Hunter are without power today following two days of intense storm activity. Ausgrid CEO Vince Graham has estimated it could be “extended days” before power is restored to all homes. If you are concerned about electricity and water service interruptions in your area, Sydney Water, Ausgrid, Essential and Endeavour Energy are all posting regular updates online.
These web pages are a handy source of information on issues such as the cause and status of outages as well as estimated restoration.
