Storm News Update

Storm Repairs in Lindfield, Sydney November 2019

Time | Date 2019

Ausgrid has safely restored power to the final customers impacted by the cyclone-like storm which hit Sydney’s north and destroyed large parts of the electricity network.

At the height of the storms 52,000 homes and businesses lost power. Power was progressively restored as crews rebuilt the network, with 45,000 customers restored by Friday.

Strong winds on Monday hampered restoration efforts as storm-damaged trees fell and brought down more powerlines.

Tonight power has been restored to the final 100 customers in the hardest hit areas in pockets of Pymble and Killara.

Chief Operating Officer Trevor Armstrong has thanked customers for their patience.
