Cordon lifted in tornado-hit area; Vector give warning about restoring electricity

Press Release – Auckland Council
Auckland Council Civil Defence lifted the cordon in the tornado-affected area at 6:30pm tonight. Residents are being warned to take extreme care when checking their properties.

If you need any assistance call the Government Helpline on 0800 779 997.

The following is a message from Vector:

Vector is working to repair the damage to our network as quickly and safely as possible.
However, once the network is repaired, any damage to your service line and/or point of entry
(POE) will prevent the restoration of power to your premises until this damage on your property is also repaired.

Vector would like to assist as best as we can, therefore we will ensure the service line is repaired and reconnected to your Point of entry (POE). However, you must first arrange for an electrician to check and repair your POE if damaged. The POE is the point where the service line connects to your house. Your insurance should cover this cost.

When your electrician has completed the necessary checks and/or repairs to your POE, then please contact our service provider, Electrix on 021 2454122 so that we can schedule the re-livening of your property once the network is restored.
