VIDEO: Ergon films aerial views of floodwaters at Clermont

ERGON Energy crews working across Central Queensland as storms continue to disrupt the power network have captured footage of floodwaters south of Clermont.

Workgroup leader Daniel Werthenbach took the video this week as he flew over the area for work.

Crews have made good progress on restorations today, despite some atrocious boggy conditions. 

Reaching residents impacted by storms and power outages at Longreach provide to be one of Ergon Energy's toughest challenges after this week's storms.

"We have been getting hammered by afternoon storms and heavy rainfall limiting access."

This was part of a communication this morning from Longreach-based Work Group Leader Mick Bichsel explaining the situation facing western Ergon Energy crews.

"We've managed to get most customers back on, with a couple of exceptions," Mick explained in his report from the field.
