Ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie
30 March to 4 April 2017
The impact of ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie was felt through all of Queensland and our field crew faced long hard days of power restoration – everything from 124kph wind speeds, heavy rain, landslides and flooding.
The total number of customers affected in South East Queensland was 214,855 with a total number of wires down of 1,862. All power was restored within six days.
The following is a great collection of images, sent in from our field crew and community, that showcase the mighty Mother Nature and how she impacts the power network.
