4.

Right now the whole of #Adelaide is sitting in the dark tweeting/texting/Facebooking that they are sitting in the dark. #AdelaideStorm

5.

Remember the first rule of a power outage is to use all the charge on your phone to talk about not having power #AdelaideStorm

Somewhere in SA, there's a person with a huge rooftop solar system & a couple of Tesla Powerwalls, rocking out & completely oblivious

7. People pointed the finger at a certain footie team.

9. And there were lots of questions...

Well, we have no power.... So the question is... Who do we eat first?

10.

I wonder how many babies will be born in 9 months? #AdelaideStorm

11.

How can entire state lose power? Especially one that's given us so much wine?

12.

Is it time to stock up on Coopers, just in case?

13.

Anyone know when the power's coming back on? Asking for a friend. I'm absolutely not sitting at a petrol station on empty. #AdelaideStorm

15. A huge, unseasonal storm.

But... It's the middle of spring... πŸ˜Άβ›ˆ #AdelaideStorm

16. A huge, SCARY storm.

A TREE IN THE YARD NEXT DOOR JUST GOT HIT BY LIGHTNING OMFGWHATTHEACTUAL THAT WAS TERRIFYING. #AdelaideStorm

17. The Premier didn't have much to report.

Power outages affecting all of SA. May be outages for an extended period. More to come. Stay tuned to ABC891 on battery operated radio.

18. But it was scary.

19. Very scary.

20. Uber was off the charts.

21. People used the #AdelaideStorm hashtag to have a pop at SA's electricity providers.

South Australia has the highest power prices in the country.. Yet as soon as the #AdelaideStorm hits the whole STATE is without electricity.

22. While non-South Australians threw shade.

Well I suppose one good thing about this SA power blackout is at least Adelaide's nightlife won't be affected at all. #AdelaideStorm

Exclusive vision of South Australia coming through.

24.

South Australia goes into blackout, dozens of serial killers suddenly unable to cut up bodies with power tools #AdelaideStorm
