Power still off in some homes

Powercor crews have restored power to more than 70,000 homes and businesses following yesterday's severe windstorms, however customers are being advised that some areas may not have power back on until late tonight.

Extra crews have been moved to the hardest hit areas around Kyneton, Woodend and Gisborne.

The latest advice from Powercor shows that 20,000 customers are still off the grid, about 12,000 of those in the Macedon ranges region.
