Thames Coromandel Weather Update #3


Thames Coromandel Weather Update #3

7:10am Wednesday 9 July 2014

Reports to Council overnight as a result of the easterly wind event were less than expected, with only power outages and some debris called in. Kauaeranga Valley Road was blocked near the Christian camp by a fallen pine tree around 5:30am and fire services report that a power line had come down there too. Contractors had the lines isolated quickly and have been working on moving the tree. Residents there should expect some delays coming into town this morning.

The calls received through our call centre overnight related to street lights and contractors have been sent to take care of those.

Council staff and contractors have now begun investigating the district and will report in once they see more at first light.

No road closures have been reported and state highways are clear at at the time of this report.

The Coromandel's Facebook community has reported intermittent power outages in Whitianga, Komata, Omahu, Paeroa, Wharepoa, Thames, Coromandel town, Waikawau, Tapu-Coroglen Road, Thornton Bay and Waiomu.

PowerCo says it expects faults around the Thames and Kopu areas to be fixed in the next hour and the rest by about 10am.

A full situation report for the wider district is expected between 9:00am and 9:30am.
