Essential Energy field crews are working in three locations to restore power by 5pm to homes in the MidCoast Council area.
Crews are in Paffs Lane, Krambach, Waterloo Road, Karkatt and Milligans Lane, Olbuley Brush, according to Essential Energy’s manager of community relations north coast, Rachel Hussell.
Ms Hussell said lightning strikes in the three locations caused trees to fall and interrupt the power supply to around 250 customers in Krambach, Karkatt, Olbuley Brush, Diamond Beach and Gloucester. She confirmed that no customers in the Taree area had lost power.
She said field crews would endeavour to have supply restored to customers by 5pm.
