WIND CUTS POWER

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Our District News -

About 200 prop­er­ties were left in the dark as strong winds and a fallen tree brought down pow­er­lines in Manawatu¯ and Ran­git¯ıkei. A tree brought down pow­er­lines in Ohin­gaiti, north of Hun­ter­ville, about 1.30pm on Tues­day, cut­ting power to the area. In Mar­ton, Feild­ing and on Ran­git¯ıkei Line, strong winds caused lines to clash, trip­ping the sup­ply. Powerco Net­work oper­a­tions man­ager Phil Marsh said con­trac­tors had re­stored power to most of the prop­er­ties and were work­ing to have the bal­ance re­con­nected by late Tues­day.
