Power has been restored to all 150 Southland homes affected by an outage this morning.
A Fonterra milk tanker crashed into a power pole in Mautaura, early this morning, cutting power to nearby residents.
Up to 15,000 litres of milk was lost as a result of the crash.
Most drained into the Mataura River, swollen by heavy rain so the milk diluted quickly.
