Hundreds left without power across the Gold Coast

A FEW hundred homes and businesses are without power across the Gold Coast this morning.

Bundall and Helensvale are the worst affected suburbs with 21 streets included in the outage.

Some homes around Varsity Lakes and Burleigh Heads are also without power.


That has affected some traffic lights in the area, with reports the lights are blacked out along Reedy Creek Road at the intersection with Ambassador Drive.

Energex says it is investigating the cause at the moment and is working to restore power as quickly as possible.

Around 19 homes have also been affected by an outage along Bilborough Court and Springbrook Road in Springbrook after Energex equipment was damaged in the severe weather.

Crews have been working to fix that issue but it may take several hours to resolve.
