Extreme weather events can also bring down overhead powerlines.
A fallen powerline can send electricity into the ground for up to 10 metres all around it. If you see a fallen powerline, don’t touch anything near it and keep clear of the 10 metre danger zone.
Report fallen powerlines to Horizon Power immediately on 13 23 51.
