A spokesman from Energy Queensland said the power was cut to enable crews to repair a cross-arm that gave way.

The cross-arm was previously damaged by a heavy storm.

The spokesman said power was expected to remain off for about three hours.

It's the second outage in days after hundreds of Fraser Coast homes went dark over the weekend due to damage to an underground cable in Snapper St.
