Pretty much the whole lot except for LaTrobe st. I got stuck in the middle of it going out to see a customer. There's no traffic lights, alot of buildings evacuated. Apprently there was a fire in one of generators at 333 collins st, but i'm not 100% sure though...

3 transformers knocked out somewhere - whole western grid out. Customs House in Latrobe street out. I'm down at East Swanson Dock and we didn't even have radio contact - our base station was knocked out .....
