Wellington City Council has dedicated teams checking on the safety of Council buildings, the Central Business area and other key infrastructure across the city, says Chief Executive Kevin Lavery.
"We are working very hard to get the city back up and running as quickly as possible. It is encouraging to see the Wellington community coming together to support each other last night and this morning,” he says.
The Council contact centre is still operating if you need advice or assistance - call 04 499 4444.
"We will provide further updates throughout the day as further information comes to hand,” he says.
Wellington Mayor Justin Lester says the city is quiet today.
"I am very happy with the work of the Council officials in getting the city on its feet – it was a fair shake and we want to make sure everyone is safe when they come back to work,” says Mayor Justin Lester.
