YESTERDAY at about 8.30am, in a cul-de-sac on Jealous Rd, a driver attempted a u-turn in his b-double.
In the incident, a power pole was snapped and residents claimed they had no power for about 10 hours until it could be repaired.
When the power goes out:
If powerlines are brought down, keep well away, alert others to the danger and call Energex on 13 19 62.
If you go outside to inspect for damage, never attempt to touch or move powerlines.
Keep children and pets well away.
Do not touch anything that powerlines are touching, like tree branches or fences.
Always assume the powerline is live.
Check refrigerated food for any unusual odours, colours or textures. When in doubt, throw it out.
