Chorus continues restoration following South Island storm

Power generators deployed, but flooding still troubling cabling

Chorus is continuing restoration work to its telecommunications network following Christchurch’s most severe storm in almost 40 years.

On Wednesday, parts of New Zealand’s South Island recorded 160mm of rain in 24 hours, coupled with winds of up to 119kph. Conditions have since eased.

The broadband infrastructure company said power generators were successfully deployed to most disrupted sites on the Banks Peninsula yesterday which restored telco services to affected residents.

Temporary power generators will remain in place until full power services are running.

Chorus said cable outages caused by water damage may continue to disrupt some landline and broadband customers in Christchurch Central and New Brighton.

The company is currently identifying these faults, but said flooding may delay restoration work.

An official update will be issued at 4:00pm today.
