PBTech must be rolling in the cash...... their Glenfield store was closed due to a power outage - yet all other retailers in the block remained opened trading. ;)

Do those other retailers still have power? There was also some incident in that area earlier today. Police blocking the road. Maybe related?

A truck has pulled down overhead lines. Happened at 12.30 power still off. Won't be back on until 1am.

Pretty sure that there is 33KV lines on Porana Rd. Also 110KV on that road as well. Gonna be a difficult repair.

You'd think they, of all people, would at least have the PoS equipment on a UPS...
