Some homes still without power in Tauranga

Some homes in Tauranga and Te Puke remain in the dark this morning.

Last night, six suburbs across Tauranga were without power and some flights at Tauranga Airport were delayed.

One power outage was due to a car crashing into a power pole on Sunday afternoon.

Other outages across the city were being blamed on strong winds.

At 8.40pm, Tauranga Airport recorded 77km per hour winds.

This morning, Powerco is reporting that 142 properties in Oropi, 44 in Tauranga and 36 in Te Puke are still without power.

Powerco is estimating to have power back on in the areas sometime between 9am and 10am today.
