Melbourne’s wild weather has led to United Energy power outages in Melbourne’s south-east this morning.
First up Hampton, Hampton East, Highett and Moorabbin went down at about 3am. It’s expected they’ll be back up and running at 7:30am.
Then at around 6am, Aspendale, Chelsea, Mordialloc, Bonbeach, Edithvale, Parkdalem followed suit – they should hopefully restored by 10:00 AM.
Mount Eliza also lost power, but that should be back a bit sooner- hopefully around 8:30 AM today.
Some traffic lights in the affected suburbs are out so please be careful on the roads, especially while it’s still dark.
Due to a power outage between Aspendale and Bon Beach, a number of traffic lights are out in the area, including the Nepean Highway and Edithvale Road. Drive with caution through the area. @UnitedEnergyAU are investigating the fault. #victraffic pic.twitter.com/oJF9p0rS3H
