Up to 200 properties are without power tonight in the west Auckland suburb of Glen Eden due to the wild weather.

A Vector spokeswoman said the outage was thought to have been caused by a tree falling on power lines.

Lines workers were on their way to the scene.

Fire Service spokesman Jaron Phillips said there had been several reports of trees falling as a result of high winds buffeting the area.
