Windy weather results in Coodanup power line issue

Windy weather led to a Coodanup power line being damaged on Wednesday, but Mandurah residents’ power supply was not impacted.

The Bureau of Meteorology issued a weather warning earlier this week, stating that winds could reach up to 100 km/h across the Perth Metropolitan area and the South West.

A Western Power spokesman confirmed crews were called out to Coodanup on Wednesday afternoon, where a tree branch had taken down a power line.

However, he said no residents were impacted by the disturbance, while there were no power outages as a result of the wet and windy weather this week.

In a similar incident, part of Pinjarra Road was closed on Tuesday morning after a large metal part of a power line fell due to weather conditions.
