No significant incidents reported overnight

The Auckland Emergency Coordination Centre monitored conditions in the wake of Cyclone Lusi overnight but no significant incidents were reported.

Roading contractors and the Fire Service continued to respond to calls of fallen trees and clearing other debris overnight.

Winds continued to gust over 100km/h in parts of the region into the early hours of this morning.

Auckland Civil Defence controller Clive Manley says power companies worked overnight with most power being restored overnight.

“At 10am approximately 200 Auckland customers were affected.

“Staff and Community Response Groups are inspecting northeastern beaches this morning. Initial inspections indicate that some beach erosion has occurred but no property damage has been reported to date,” he says.

MetService advise that wind will continue to decrease throughout the day with infrequent showers across the region.
