MORE than 3000 Capricorn Coast residents were without power Wednesday morning after storm damage caused a flashover on equipment at the Yeppoon substation.
 
Ergon Energy said the flashover on lightning arrestors in the substation triggered protection equipment , which cut supply to 3100 customers in the Byfield, Cawarral, Emu Park, Keppel Sands, Tanby, Yeppoon and Zilzie areas at 9.30am.
