Power outages across the Gold Coast

PARTS of the Gold Coast are in darkness this morning, as wet weather causes power outages across several suburbs.

1250 across the Coast are without power, across Ashmore, Benowa, Broadbeach Waters, Bundall and Palm Beach.

Energex says the outages are due to damage from severe weather.


The outages are having a major effect on those driving around before the sun comes up.

Lights along parts of Bermuda Street are completely out, including traffic lights.

There’s no word as to when the power will be restored at this stage.

Motorists are being urged to take care if traffic and street lights are out.
