Blackout for 200,000 households in South East Queensland

Technical faults are being blamed for power failures which have affected homes from Brisbane to the Gold Coast.

Powerlink crews are trying to fix a fault at the Belmont sub-station which has affected about 200,000 customers in Brisbane's bayside suburbs.

Meanwhile, Energex says problems at the Cades County sub-station saw homes blacked out on the Gold Coast.

But an Energex spokeswoman says power has been restored to all areas.

Received this E mail from Ausralia RE the above article.

Interesting. Especially since there have been no storms here at all for the last week. We have had more phone and power problems in the last month than I can remember having in the last 11 years. Just makes you wonder...
