Almost 1000 affected by blackout in Maaroom, Poona area

A BLACKOUT hit the Maroom, Boonooroo, Tuan, Poona and Tinnanbar area and residents were without power from 1.30am until about 6.10am.

Ergon Energy corporate communications manager Rod Rehbein said about 1000 customers were affected.

He said a broken cross-arm resulted in some high-voltage lines coming down and the cross-arm had to be replaced.

A reader said Ergon's fault service message had not been updated so "we have no way to know what is happening to decide how to protect refrigerated medicine, fish and food".
