Thousands of Sydney homes could be without electricity for a fifth straight day after storms damaged power lines, as a union claims job cuts have depleted the number of frontline power workers.

Network operator Ausgrid says 700 crews have been working to replace severed lines and broken poles after Tuesday's severe storms but warned customers to "prepare to outages lasting well into the weekend".

By 8am Saturday, 9550 residential and business customers on Sydney's north shore and northern beaches remained without electricity. Power had been restored to about 42,500 customers.

Further complicating the issue, Ausgrid says it had come across many homes where the customer's connection to the network - such as at the front of a house or a private power pole - had been significantly damaged.
