Dyer situation in Maffra

FOSTER St, Maffra was closed to all traffic on Thursday morning after a large tree branch came down on power lines and across the top of a semi-trailer.

No one was injured, but Maffra Medical Centre and surrounding businesses were left without power until later in the morning.

Police blocked off both ends of Foster St, with power company contractors working to remove the branch about 8.30am and re-established power.
