Endeavour Energy emergency crews will commence work this morning to safely restore power to the remaining 6100 Shoalhaven homes and businesses without power.

At the height of the storm yesterday, more than 15,000 customers were without electricity due to the extensive damage caused by strong winds and torrential rain.

There are almost 200 electrical hazards still needing repairs, especially where the strong winds have brought down trees and powerlines.

Extra crews from the Illawarra and Western Sydney have been brought into the Shoalhaven to assist local crews with the repair effort.

As the weather clears today, residents are reminded to please stay at least 8 metres from fallen powerlines and report them immediately by calling Endeavour Energy’s emergency line 131 003.

The main areas without power are SANCTUARY POINT (1642), BAWLEY POINT (800), OLD EROWAL BAY (544), ULLADULLA (387), BERRARA (376), KIOLOA (326), MILTON (320), WORROWING HEIGHTS (311), WOOLLAMIA (290), CUDMIRRAH (248), ST GEORGES BASIN (193), BENDALONG (168), SWANHAVEN (129), TERMEIL (111), HYAMS BEACH (65), MOLLYMOOK (55), SUSSEX INLET (43), FALLS CREEK (32), YELLOW ROCK (23), WOODSTOCK (22).
