ALMOST 6000 properties across the Bass Coast and South Gippsland Shires are without power this morning, as authorities warn there could be damaging gusts of up to 110km/h (if you haven’t already experienced it).

Korumburra is among the towns most affected, with more than 1600 properties without power.

According to the AusNet Services outage tracker, power should be returned by around 12.30pm or 1pm today (Friday, October 29), depending on where you live.

“There a large number of customers off supply due to high winds,” AusNet said in a statement on its website.

“We are working safely to restore power. Check outage tracker for updated restoration times. Remember, stay clear of fallen lines and always assume they are live.”
