South Australia braces for more wild weather

At least 75,000 homes are still without power in South Australia although the lights are back on in Adelaide’s metropolitan areas, as the state braces for more wild weather.

Premier Jay Weatherill says power is slowly returning to thousands of residents after super cell thunderstorms caused a state-wide blackout on Wednesday.

‘Overnight we’ve managed to restore all but 75,000 of the 900,000 homes to power, but we are not out of the woods yet – there is a very strong system that is approaching our west coast,’ he told the Nine Network.

Mr Weatherill said about 35,000 of the remaining homes without power are expected to have it restored on Thursday, but it’s unclear when thousands of west coast residents will be back on the grid.

‘There has been catastrophic damage to our energy infrastructure up in the north of the state so it will take considerable time to restore that,’ he said.

Recovery efforts are being hampered by the extreme weather, with the Bureau of Meteorology warning of more wild weather to come.

It could produce wind gusts of up to 140km/h, especially along the west coast of Eyre Peninsula and up to 100mm of rain across the Adelaide Hills, bringing the risk of flooding.

Aflood warning has also been issued for Port Pirie, north of Adelaide, because of a storm surge and high waves.

The warnings come a day after wild winds ripped at least 22 transmission towers from the ground across the mid-north with about 80,000 lightning strikes hitting the state, some damaging generation facilities.

The SES responded to more than 450 calls for help on Wednesday and strike teams from Western Australia have been brought in to bolster local crews.

‘There’s still the potential for significant severe weather damage,’ said SES chief officer Chris Beattie.

‘We do have concerns for the coastal defences.’
