Did you see the big flash and hear the big bang that roused several Waihi people early yesterday morning?
Powerco says 656 Waihi customers lost power at 4.53am yesterday morning, Thursday 26 November.
A Powerco field crew was dispatched to investigate and determined the cause to be a line fault. Crews worked as quickly and safely as possible to locate and isolate the line fault and restore supply.
620 customers had their power restored by 6.28am, with the remaining 36 customers’ power restored by 8.23am.
