Josephine Franks Reporter from Central Leader

Kia ora neighbours, households across central Auckland have been plunged into darkness after a power outage hit Pt Chevalier, Westmere and parts of Ponsonby on Saturday night. Vector said customers should expect to be without power while they respond to the outage. Vector is currently investigating what caused the outage. Were you one of the unlucky ones?
