    Vector Ltd - Vector media statement, Floods impact Auckland's electricity network

    January 30, 2023 - ENP Newswire


      Yesterday's flooding across Auckland has impacted the electricity network with widespread outages, particularly in west Auckland, and Vector is working closely with the emergency services to ensure the safety of communities.

      The emergency services have asked us to shut down power in some of the worst hit areas and homes and businesses will remain de-energised until the flooding subsides and we are confident it is safe to restore the power.

      The flooding has made it difficult for our crews to safely reach some of the outages, including in the Swanson area, and they will be unable to do so until the water has gone, hopefully by this morning.

      We urge everyone to take extreme care, avoid floodwaters and stay well clear of fallen power lines or damaged electrical equipment, and treat them as live at all times.

      People using medical equipment that relies on electricity should let their retailer know if they are without power. If there is an immediate health threat, they should contact their health provider or call 111.?

      We would like to thank everyone for their understanding and patience as we work within the limits of what is safe and practical to restore power as soon as possible. ?Our thoughts are with the many Aucklanders who are facing challenges caused by the extreme weather.
