Pesky Magpie cuts power at Kawana

MAGPIES can be pesky at the best of times and there was no better time to be pesky than 7.35pm tonight.


About 1400 Ergon Energy customers went without power for under an hour in the Kawana area after a magpie came in contact with electrical equipment on Carlton St, near Heights College, North Rockhampton, Ergon Energy corporate communications manager Bob Pleash said.

Power was restored by 8.25pm
