Power supplies were restored to all customers by mid afternoon, Powercor said.
A Powercor spokeswoman said crews were working to restore power to about 60 customers following a fallen power line on the Noorat-Framlingham Road.
She said the outage occurred about 7.30am and initially impacted about 344 customers.
“The crew has reported a bird or bat has brought down a wire,” she said.
“We will keep customers updated on restoration times via our website or text messages.”
A bird or bat was the cause of a fallen live electricity line on the Noorat-Framlingham Road earlier this morning, Powercor’s website says.
Residents at Garvoc (21), The Sisters (20 customers), and Framlingham (11) are still affected by the power outage.
Powercor has been contacted for comment.
A live electricity line has fallen onto the Noorat-Framlingham Road and cut off power to more than 250 customers.
It happened just metres from where the Garvoc fire was started on St Patrick's Day earlier this year when a power pole in a paddock snapped in high winds. Fallen lines on that occasion sparked a fire that destroyed property and stock.
Power supply has been cut to residents at The Sisters (109 customers), Ellerslie (66), Framlingham East (29), Garvoc (21), Noorat (16), Framlingham (15) and Kolora (9).
The line is blocking half of the road. Residents are advised to avoid the area.
The incident happened about 7.50am.
Crews are working to resolve the situation.
Powercor said on its website that power was expected to be restored by 10am.
More to come.
