New Zealand Bad Storms Hit Australia >No Power in 1 Entire State

Entire State Without Electricity as Storms Hit Australia

Local residents wade along a road closed due to flooding following heavy rains in midwestern New South Wales

The Telegraph Sydney , 28 September 2016.

Heavy storms have left the entire state of South Australia without power after the most severe weather event in fifty years brought strong winds, hail and heavy rains.

The state, which is about four times the size of Britain and home to 1.7 million, was plunged into darkness after winds toppled an electricity tower.
Traffic was brought to a standstill in Adelaide, the capital, as flights were grounded, rail services and trams stopped, traffic lights were off, and fire alarms blared across the city.

The state lost power at about 3.45pm (7:15am BST), local time, and was likely to be in darkness until about 4am on Thursday.
Weather authorities warned that destructive winds of up to 70 miles an hour and heavy rains were still to hit the state and could cause dangerous flooding.

Police warned people to stay calm and avoid non-essential travel.
“Power still out across the State,” the state’s police warned in a tweet. “Stay safe by staying indoors, don't drive unless you have to - roads are very congested.”

Hospitals remained open and people relying on medical equipment were told to “be prepared to action your back up plan”.

No injuries have been reported, but communication in the state remains limited. Buildings across the state were heavily damaged.

Jay Weatherill, the state’s premier, said it was not clear when power would be restored but backup systems would be activated.
"It is not known how long we will be without power," he told ABC Radio.
"We have plenty of thermal generation which is being fired up now which will allow us to deal with this issue. That will assist us to get power back into the system."

Adelaide’s airport allowed flights to land but suspended departures.

Severe weather has cut power to all of South Australia with storm damage to infrastructure forcing the entire electricity network to shut down.
An incident involving infrastructure near Port Augusta at 3.48pm on Wednesday prompted the failure of the entire SA network, Premier Jay Weatherill says.

The premier says the state's energy generation assets remain intact and there does not appear to be any damage to the interconnector with Victoria.

A spokesperson for SA Power Networks told Sky News the interconnector did not cause the power outage rather the system has shut down as a response to protect customer safety.
The Australian energy market operator has taken control of the system and restoration has begun.

Federal Resources Minister Josh Frydenberg told Sky News he can not give an exact time for the restoration of power.
Mr Frydenberg says all hospitals are running on their back up supplies.

The blackout prompted police to call for people to avoid travel if possible as roads in the centre of Adelaide and the suburbs became gridlocked.
Patrols were also dispatched to direct traffic at major intersections amid reports of widespread accidents.

All metropolitan train services were cancelled with buses made available for some commuters.

Some buildings had emergency generators and authorities said hospitals were operating as normal on back-up power.

The blackout came as strong winds and heavy rain lashed parts of SA with the Bureau of Meteorology warning super cell thunderstorms were possible across the central and mid-north districts.
The bureau issued a severe thunderstorm warning for an area stretching from the Riverland to Marree.
It said super cells within those storms could produce wind gusts up to 140km/h along with heavy rain that could cause flash flooding.

The extreme weather reached the city about midday and was expected to dump up to 100mm of rain in some areas, including the Adelaide Hills, where a flood warning was in place.
Similar falls were possible in the mid north with the cyclonic conditions expected to whip up large swells along the state's coast, producing 10-metre waves.

By late afternoon the State Emergency Service had responded to more than 330 calls for help, most because of fallen trees or rising water.
It earlier distributed more than 43,000 sandbags to residents concerned about flooding after severe weather just two weeks ago inundated 80 homes across Adelaide and the Mt Lofty Ranges.

The bureau said the wild weather was the result of a front and intense low- pressure system.

It said records suggest such a severe system was last reported across SA more than 50 years ago.
