Emergency management teams visit 5000 households

노영례 0 1,427 2018.04.15 20:56

Auckland Emergency Management has coordinated visits to 5000 households over this weekend in areas affected by the power outage.

On Sunday 15 April, 3000 households were visited by 138 people from the police, Fire and Rescue New Zealand, Community Patrols New Zealand, New Zealand Defence Force, St John’s Ambulance, and Land Search and Rescue, following visits to 2000 properties on Saturday.

Auckland Emergency Management delivered 240 portaloos and 19,800 litres of water to affected households and to fire stations for distribution.

The Ministry of Social Development received 35 phone calls for assistance today, with 12 staff assisting at community hubs.

Leisure centres and libraries offer support

Auckland Emergency Management’s community hubs will close on Monday 16 April and remaining people affected by the power outage can get support from Auckland Council Pools and Leisure centres, Auckland Libraries and Auckland Council Service Centres.

Auckland Pools and Leisure website

Auckland Libraries

If you need help with urgent or unexpected costs as a result of the Auckland storms, the Ministry of Social Development may be able to help, call 0800 559009. You don’t need to be on a benefit.

More information at the Work and Income website

Power restored throughout the day

Acting Auckland Emergency Management Director Craig Glover says more power has been restored throughout the day.

“As more power is restored we’ve had less people needing our assistance in the community hubs. People are encouraged to visit Auckland Council Pools and Leisure centres and Auckland Libraries for information and support on Monday," he says.

“We will continue to support those without power and residents can contact us on 0800 22 22 00 if they need assistance."

Vector advises us that up to 1500 properties are without power. Counties Power advises that it has restored power to all but 175 properties.

Weather: Moderate thunderstorm risk on Monday

On Monday 16 April there is a moderate risk of thunderstorms in the late morning as a front crosses the region. This could bring gusts of 90 or possibly 100km/h for a time to some localised areas.

Check the Metservice website for the latest weather updates.

Water and portaloos

Anyone without access to a toilet or drinking water because of the storm, that can’t get any by other means, can phone us on 0800 22 22 00.

Auckland Council contractors will ensure they are secured for the upcoming weather.

Power

For up-to-date information visit the Vector and Counties Power websites.

Once power is restored to your property, it may take several hours for the hot water lines be connected and for your cylinder to heat up.

All downed power lines should be treated as live. Stay well away and don’t attempt to cut or move trees that are in contact with lines. 

Waste food

If food has spoiled as a result of your power outage you can take it to Waitakere Transfer Station in Henderson and dispose of it for free. 

If you cannot access the transfer station and have more than three rubbish sacks of spoiled food, call 0800 222200 to arrange for a special collection.

Auckland Council’s rubbish collection services are scheduled as normal.

Waitakere Transfer Station address: 50 The Concourse, Henderson, Auckland 0610. Opening hours: Mon - Fri: 6am-6pm.

Trees

Auckland Council contractors are working to manage emergency tree works across the region. Contractors are prioritising jobs that pose immediate safety issues.

Trees will be put on berms and mulched at a later date, so contractors can move on to higher priority jobs. This may take weeks to clear.

Report trees down on public land to Auckland Council on 09 301 0101.

Rural Support Trust

The Rural Support Trust can provide those living in rural areas with advice and support. Contact the trust on 0800 787 254.

Animal welfare

If your property is experiencing issues with septic/waste overflow, try to prevent animals coming into contact with this material.  Animals are just as susceptible to becoming unwell as people if they ingest this material. It can cause gastro-like illness. If you are boiling water for safe drinking, do the same for your animals.
