Wayatinah back on line

CREWS from Aurora Energy today restored the power supply to almost all properties in the Wayatinah area. Electricity was cut to more than 30 properties in the village and surrounds after the current bushfire destroyed more than a kilometre of power lines and at least 10 power poles.

Aurora spokesman Mal Conway said an intensive restoration effort involving eight Aurora trucks and more than a dozen crews resulted in the power being turned back on at around 2.30pm today. “The restoration efforts today were very pleasing considering the extent of the damage to our assets and the erratic behaviour of the fire yesterday,’’ Mr Conway said. A a handful of properties remained without power and services were expected to be restored later today.
