More than 1600 customers lose power in Tara

RECENT storms have cut power to many customers in the Tara region, according to an Ergon Energy spokesman.

As many as 1600 customers around Tara and Kogan were without power this morning, but that number has dropped to roughly 1100.

An Ergon Energy spokesman, said Dalby was largely unaffected by the power outages.
