Thousands of homes without power across Gold Coast, Scenic Rim

THOUSANDS of homes and businesses across the Gold Coast and Scenic Rim remain without power following yesterday’s severe weather.

Over 700 people have been affected by the blackout on the Gold Coast, with the worst hit suburbs including Mount Nathan, Guanaba, Clagiraba, Maudsland, Runaway Bay and Coombabah.

A further 4000 buildings have been affected in the Scenic Rim.


There’s more than 2000 people without power in Tamborine Mountain, another 1000 in Tamborine, 385 in Beechmont and 283 in Boyland.

It’s understood the cause for most of the outages is downed powerlines from Wednesday’s brief but fierce hail storm.

Energex crews are desperately working to restore power as soon as possible.
