It always amazes me that ActewAGL ads appear thick and fast straight after an “event”.
A large power surge hit Civic around 1:30pm today, it didn’t cause any damage (that I know of), but it did take out some traffic light briefly, create minor havoc in offices with computers restarting and lights going out.
I was on a bus at the time and saw the traffic lights flash amber for a couple minutes, and had to pull the plug on my ADSL modem and switch to get them working again. I have received reports of minor problems is the Canberra Centre.
ActewAGL remain silent.
