The village of Candelo, and surrounding area, is without power this morning after an intense electrical storm overnight.

Essential energy says they've received numerous calls from the Far South Coast regarding isolated power outages and there have also been reports of outages at Buckajo, near Bega. 

Yesterday large hailstones also fell in the region as storm cells hit towns along the coast, however the SES says no damage has been reported. 

The Bureau of Meteorology says more storms are possible for later today.
