most recent warnings
South Australia and its 1.677 million residents were left without power on Wednesday evening following severe storms.
Federal Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg says serious questions will be raised about how the entirety of South Australia could be left without electricity in the wake of a huge storm, dubbed the largest in 50 years.
Power is gradually being turned back on across parts of South Australia but much of the state remains in darkness after a widespread blackout.
