With the eminent arrival of Cyclone Gabrielle we've put together further information relating to high winds and overhead power lines.

High winds pose serious danger where overhead lines are present

  • Do not approach fallen power lines
  • Stay as far away from fallen power lines as possible
  • Treat all fallen power lines as live

Debris in overhead power lines

  • Never touch any item that is in contact with power lines – regardless of if they are live or not
  • Electricity can track down damp or wet materials

For downed powerlines on the street or aerial supplies to homes or businesses contact your local network lines company 

In an emergency always contact 111
