Northland power cut: Transpower still trying to find cause

From Checkpoint, 5:23 pm on 27 November 2019

Transpower says it is still trying to figure out what caused a massive power outage to the top of the North Island on Wednesday.

A circuit supplying power to Northland and the Far North tripped around 9:30am, while the back up was down for maintenance.

The outage affected around 80,000 customers north of Warkworth, leaving much of the region without power.
