Sunday, September 24 2000 Hamilton power goes off, on again

23.09.2000 20:45

Power has been restored to most of Hamilton after a sudden outage blacked out the city earlier this evening, but Huntly is still dark. Transpower's Steven Fox says engineers are working to find the problem.

He says protection systems shut down the Hamilton sub-station, which has now been put back on line.

The cause of the outage is unknown at this stage.
