Levin, Waikanae loses power

10:27 am on 8 October 2015

About 8,000 households in Levin and Waiterere and a couple of hundred others in Waikanae and Pekapeka have been hit by simultaneous power cuts this morning.

Electra lines company general manager Ross Leggett says it is not yet known what caused the cuts at 8:30am, but it is suspected power lines may have been hit by trees falling in high winds.

He says power has now been fully restored to the Waikanae area and the majority of homes in Levin.
