Illawarra storms leave many without power


The severe electrical storms that swept through the Illawarra late yesterday left thousands of homes without power.

Figures from Endeavour Energy show at the height of the deluge 1416 homes and businesses were blacked out at Figtree, 1366 in the Warrawong area and 1235 at Lake Heights.

Endeavour says repair crews worked well into the night to return power to as many customers as possible.
