Power outage hits Bundy residents

ABOUT 2000 people in Bundaberg were left without power on Friday night.

An Ergon Energy spokesman said a flying fox was caught in the mains powers system at Hurst St, which probably led to the outage shortly before 8pm.

The outage impacted residents in Avenell Heights, Walkervale and surrounding areas.

Power was restored to most residents about 9pm.
