Power cut hits Port Chalmers homes

Power is out for scores of customers in the Port Chalmers area after a falling tree downed lines.

In a statement this morning Delta said power went out around 6.30am to 137 customers from Carey’s Bay to Aramoana. The estimated restoration time was midday.

Elsewhere in Dunedin, power has been restored to the Dalmore, Northeast Valley and Gardens areas, while inland it has been restored in the Island Block, Millers Flat and Raes Junction areas.
