UPDATE: Power returned to 3000 homes after mass outage

UPDATE, 2.20pm: Workers have managed to restore power to almost 3000 homes across the Ipswich area following an earlier mass outage.

According to Energex, supply was successfully restored a little before 2pm after a vehicle reportedly damaged equipment in the area.

However, a QPS spokesman has since confirmed the outage came as result of a fallen tree.

Residents at nearby Flinders View and Raceview are now also faced with similar issues.

Around 90 properties have since lost power as result of another tree which has fallen.

Streets impacted include Barret St, Brendale Ave, Douglas St, East Saunders St, Melrose Dr, Saunders St E, Swanbank Rd.

INITIAL, 1pm: Close to 3000 homes across Redbank Plains, Swanbank, and White Rock have been left without power this afternoon.

Energex first reported the mass blackout around midday on Monday for 2933 properties.

It is understood a vehicle had reportedly caused damage to Energex equipment, resulting in the incident.

However, a QAS spokesman has since been unable to confirm whether a traffic accident had occurred in the area.

Multiple Energex crews are currently on site working to rectify the issue.

The next update is expected at 1.30pm.

Close to 3000 properties at Redbank Plains, White Rock and Swanbank have been left without power.
