Power outage in Byron Shire

Power supply company Essential Energy says that approximately 1,780 homes and businesses were without supply this morning.

To the surfers out at Boulder on the morning of 22 March: thanks for the warning regarding the 10ft Great White that jumped out of the water – especially the Brazilian guy I talked to in the carpark before I was about to jump in. If it wasn’t for the warning the sweep would have landed me right on top of the beast. If only we can look after each other in similar ways! Thanks, lads.

Bradley Agius, Byron Bay
