Civil Defence activated to assist with effects of substation power cut
Auckland Civil Defence and Emergency Management’s emergency coordination centre was activated early this morning to assist with managing the effects of the Penrose substation fire.
A number of Auckland suburbs are without power. Vector estimates it will take 24 to 48 hours to restore power to St Johns, Remuera, Sylvia Park and Mt Wellington.
Vector estimates the following areas could be restored this afternoon: Newmarket, Glen Innes, Onehunga and parts of Epsom.
Clive Manley, Civil Defence Controller says his priority is to provide assistance to those who are in most need and ensure that critical infrastructure continues to operate.
“We are in close contact with Vector, Transpower, Police and the Fire Service.”
“People who are medically dependent should have implemented their alternative arrangements. If they need additional help they should contact Vector 0508 VECTOR (0508 832 867) or if life-threatening, call 111.”
Civil Defence will provide updates through the day.
