Unexplained outage cuts power to 405 homes

Four hundred and five homes lost power early this afternoon in Berhampore, Brooklyn, Vogeltown and Mornington.

Wellington Electricity said the cause of the outage was “to be determined.”

Its website listed eighteen streets where the power supply had been cut.

It said that power would be restored by 4pm.

But for some houses at least, the power came back in less than twenty minutes.
