By AAP Newswire

More than 11,000 Victorian homes and businesses are still without power after thunderstorms lashed the state on Tuesday night.

Trees and powerlines fell at locations across the state with winds of nearly 90km/h and 10mm of rain.

Crews worked through the night to restore power to homes after more than 100,000 residents lost electricity on Tuesday night, particularly in the state's north and northeast.

State Emergency Service (SES) crews responded to more than 2000 requests for assistance, mainly for building damage, fallen trees and powerlines.

An SES spokesperson confirmed the hardest hit areas were Manningham, Mildura, Kilmore, Wangaratta and Bendigo.

By Wednesday afternoon, 11,087 Victorian residents were still without electricity.

Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are likely to continue in the state's east throughout Wednesday, according to the Bureau of Meteorology.
