Hundreds of people were left without power for several hours last week as a strong storm front moved through the region.
A storm cell hit Cobram late Tuesday afternoon, dumping at least 27mm of rain in local gauges.
The nearest Bureau of Meteorology recording station at Tocumwal recorded 20.2mm.
A Powercor spokesperson said crews discovered a few faults in the area on the night, which were all storm-related.
A lightning strike was listed as the cause of the main fault at one of the main feeders, which affected power supply to 1770 homes around Cornish St.
‘‘The power went out at 18:20 and was progressively restored from about 21:20,’’ the spokesperson said.
‘‘By 21:30, there were 114 customers off supply in the immediate area of the fault while repairs were made and these final customers were restored at 22:43.
‘‘As always, we realise loss of supply is frustrating for people and appreciate their patience while our crews got it resolved.’’
The storm also caused flash-flooding across a number of streets, prompting a reminder from the State Emergency Service for people to never drive through floodwater.
