Storm causes minimal disruption

MEDIA ALERT
5am Update 

Western Power says the wild weather overnight caused minimal disruption to services.

Fault levels remained at normal levels in the Metro area and only slightly higher in some regional areas.

About 300 people in the town of Mullewa (east of Geraldton) lost power during the storm, though they are expected to have their services restored by mid morning.

Western Power crews are now bracing for the possibility of a second cold front later today or into the evening.

If anyone sees fallen powerlines, Western Power is advising people to steer clear and make the safe call 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
2) if power lines fall across your car - stay inside the car until help arrives
