Melbourne and Victoria Power Failures

Power outages all over Melbourne (as well as Victoria). The Age says:

Large parts of Victoria including much of metropolitan Melbourne are now without power, after bushfires in the north-east of the state knocked out vital transmission lines connecting Victoria to the national power grid.

To see the areas around central Melbourne affected you can go to the CItipower Outages page.

Traffic lights are out, trains are still running (but delayed). Be careful folks..

Update: This report says that the fire has disrupted 2 gigawatts of power that the state would normally have access to.
