ADVISORY - DISRUPTION TO SERVICES IN QUEENSLAND – 3:30 P.M. (ADST)

NETWORK SERVICES IMPACTED IN PARTS OF QUEENSLAND

Cyclone Debbie and its aftermath which is causing heavy rain and flooding in Queensland, has affected power supplies affecting network services in some regions.

Vodafone does not currently have a clear picture of the extent or expected duration of these power outages and advises customers that the power supply problems are currently having an adverse effect on services in several locations in Queensland.

In Southern Queensland, our engineers have successfully restored services in the following locations: Cooroy, Doonan, Eumundi, Gildora, Gunalda, Gympie, Iveragh, Maroochydore, Miriam Vale, Toonboro, Peregian Springs, Rockhampton and Woodford.

Areas that remain impacted include:

Far North Queensland

Airlie Beach, Bloomsbury, Bowen, Carmila, Guthalungra, Koumala, Mount Rooper, Strathdickie and Whitsundays.

Southern Queensland

Beerburrum and South Maclean.

Where possible, Vodafone has been using helicopters to fly in back-up generators and diesel fuel to network areas that have lost power in an effort to maintain network services.

Vodafone is working with other support organisations and will provide further updates on the situation as details become available.
