Power out in Stanthorpe

STANTHORPE has ground to a halt this morning, as a major blackout swept across the Granite Belt and leaving more than 6000 customers without power.

Banks and stores in the main street have closed their doors, which comes on the same day sleet has hit many parts of the area.

The blackout hit at about 10.10am this morning and spans Stanthorpe and surrounding areas, including Applethorpe, Amiens, Glen Aplin, Pozieres, The Summit, Severnlea and Thulimbah.

Ergon Energy communications manager Rod Rehbein said it was unclear what had caused the outage or whether it was related to the weather conditions.

"We have nothing on what has caused it yet but we are working on restoring power from other feeders at the moment," he said.

Mr Rehbein added that he couldn't estimate when power would be restored.
