Recovery underway following ex cyclone Gita

Network Tasman advises that the following areas in the Tasman Region are without power this morning. Restoration efforts are challenging due to road closures, localised flooding and slips.

We are working to restore power as soon as possible. Customers should prepare to be without power until late afternoon on Wednesday 21st February.

As power can be restored at any time please treat all lines, electrical installations and wiring as live. Stay clear of downed lines and stay clear of trees that have fallen over lines.

Updates will be posted on our web page
