Sudden wild weather hitting Wellington after days of sunshine has left hundreds without power.

Several roads were closed due to surface flooding – Grays Road, and part of SH58 in Whitby.

Up to 250mm of rain fell on the Tararuas over last night and this morning, along with winds up to 150km/h in exposed places.
