Up to 180,000 properties were without electricity after wild weather wrecked havoc with the network almost two weeks ago.

Vector said crews continued to reconnect properties to power and hot water over the weekend.

However, the company said they had received calls from a number of people, who hadn't previously been able to get in touch, to say they were still cut off.

Vector was aware of three properties without power - one a rural property with fallen poles that it was impossible to get machinery into.

Crews would have to hand-dig holes for new power poles, which would be flown in by helicopter.
