With power out to more than 30,000 homes across Wellington, the airport shut down and a ferry broken loose from its moorings, Wellingtonian have endured one night of what has been the worst storm to batter the region in decades.

“It’s mostly trees or branches that are coming down, there is some flooding across roads and power is going out sporadically.”

Police urge motorists to drive smart and safe, and to allow extra time if you must travel throughout the region.
