Residents at Macknade and Bemerside are asked to boil water for consumption, as a precaution, after lightning strikes tripped power at the Macknade Treatment Plant last night and reserves are now low.
No other areas are affected at this stage.
Council crews are working to rectify the issue as soon as possible and updates will be provided as they come to hand.
Council asks that this advice be shared with neighbours and friends in the affected area.
Please contact the Hinchinbrook Local Disaster Call Centre on 4776 4600 for non-urgent assistance or if you are unable to check weather updates and road conditions online.
