Outages in the South West and South Coast

Western Power crews are continuing efforts to restore power in the South West and South Coast amid more bad weather.

While there is a small number of customers without electricity after a series of rolling storm fronts, they are mostly located in remote locations which are difficult to access.

Western Power crews are contending with extremely difficult terrain over an area covering 5 million hectares to reach outlying faults on the network.

Electricity supply has been restored to all main feeder lines, but there are still many spur lines which remain off.

Some spur lines are up to 100 kilometres long and only service a handful of customers.

The safety of Western Power crews and the safety of the public is paramount at Western Power. Crews are working as quickly as possible to safely restore power to people's homes.

Western Power would like to thank the communities in the South West and South Coast for their support during this massive operation.

Anyone who has been without power for more than 12 hours is eligible for an extended outage payment and is encouraged to call 13 10 87 to apply.

Residents are urged to report network hazards to Western Power's emergency fault line on 13 13 51.

What to do:

1) if you see fallen power lines - stay clear and call Western Power's faults line on 13 13 51
