Changing weather causes disruptions

Western Power crews have safely restored electricity to about 16,000 customers in the metro area, after this morning's weather event caused multiple interruptions.

About 2,000 customers are without power while crews continue to work safely and quickly to restore supply.

The changing weather is a timely reminder for people to prepare their homes ahead of storm season by clearing vegetation on their properties, away from powerlines.

If anyone sees a fallen powerline they should treat them as being live, stay clear and immediately call Western Power's 24/7 emergency and faults line on 13 13 51.
