Power back on in Auckland after storm

5:10 pm on 15 June 2014

Residents who have been without power since the damaging storm that hit Auckland five days ago now have their electricity restored.

Lines company Vector says Tuesday's storm took out 90,000 households and businesses and was four times more damaging than Cyclone Ita in April.

Crews are still working to fix hot water issues throughout the region.

Vector says that Kelston and Glen Eden have their hot water back, and they will be working on other affected areas soon.

Trees came down on the North Shore.
