Waioeka Gorge reopens

Some of the crew at work on the slip.

SH2

· State Highway 2 is marginal but open

· Slips and surface flooding reported.

· 600 people still without power south of Wairoa. Eastland Network says the dangerous conditions are causing trees to come down and roads are being closed, stopping crews from reaching and repairing some faults. Until access is restored, power will stay out in some areas, possibly overnight. For updates call 0800 206 207.
