Gales impacting Auckland early this morning, causing power outages

The forecast gales have arrived in Auckland with intense winds starting around 1:30am and have been surging off and on ever since.

Power outages are expected to continue due to branches and trees down as winds reach gale force at times and gust over 120km/h.
