MASS OUTAGE: Power cut to 2700 Coast homes
More than 2700 Sunshine Coast homes were without power this morning as Energex crews rushed to determine the cause of the outage.
A total of 1625 homes in Marcoola were without power, as well as 755 in Mount Coolum, 332 in Coolum Beach, 27 in Mudjimba and one in West Woombye.
An Energex spokesman said a bushwalker found what they believed to be a fallen power line, which prompted an emergency outage as crews investigated.
Power has since been restored.
