Power restored after tornado

Power has been restored across Hobsonville after it was knocked out by Thursday's deadly tornado.

Lines company Vector said in a statement that crews were due to finish restoring power to the last 30 customers yesterday afternoon.

"The repair and restoration of the network in this area has been achieved well ahead of expectations and Vector is grateful for the patience of our customers and the dedication of our faults crews."

Customers who were still without power were advised to call their electricity retailer.

Vector said some of the properties without power yesterday were among the 150 most badly damaged and were potentially uninhabitable.
