10:05 pm on 19 September 2015

A number of separate power cuts that affected homes and businesses in the Auckland region have now been resolved.

At Orewa, 1111 customers were without power and at nearby Red Beach, 471 customers are also without power for several hours.

A part of Remuera was also cut off for a time from 7.30pm, affecting 800 households.

Lines company Vector said all the cuts were because of feeder faults and crews have now restored power.

Earlier 660 properties near the central business district lost electricity for several hours, also because of a feeder fault.
