Power outings and roads closed after wild night

Power outings and roads closed all around wider Mercury Bay after a night of heavy winds and lots of rain.

Trees are down and Coroglen, Cooks Beach, Ferry Landing, Hahei, Kaimarama, Kuaotuno, Matarangi, Opito Bay, Rings Beach, Te Rerenga, Whangapoua, Whenuakite and Whitianga are all without power.

PowerCo hopes all power will be restored by 5:00pm today.

State Highway 25 is closed between Whitianga and Tairua and also at Hikuai. It’s uncertain when the road will open again.

A big tree that was bolwn over is also blocking the Tapu-Coroglen Road.
