THOUSANDS of premises around Hobart lost power this afternoon as winds up to 110km/h whipped across southern Tasmania.

Aurora Energy said about 3600 customers in Hobart's northern suburbs, including Goodwood, Moonah and Otago Bay, lost power as well as about 1200 customers in Sandy Bay and Lower Sandy Bay.

There were also 800 premises in Howrah that lost power after a tree damaged power lines.

Aurora said it had been advised that a roof had been blown through power lines.

By 3pm, power had been restored to all but 450 premises in West Moonah and Claremont.

Live power outage information is available on Aurora's website or their Twitter feed.

The power outage also affected traffic lights, including on the Brooker Highway.

Police performed point duty at major roads along the highway.

The wild winds also blew at least one yacht form its mooring near South Arm, smashing it into rocks on the shore.
