Wild winds tore down trees and power lines in yesterday afternoon’s hectic weather, leaving hundreds of homes without power right across the city.

Commuters are asked to be patient as traffic lights at some major intersections are without power causing delays.

Traffic lights are currently out in the following areas:

  • Greensborough: along Para Road and Grimshaw St.
  • Chirnside Park: Maroondah Highway and Victoria Road.
  • Manor Lakes, north of Werribee: Ballan Road and Hobbs Road.
  • Eltham: along main road near the fire station, and at Bridge and Silver streets.
