1 January 2000; 1:00am No reports of Y2K-related incidents, says the New Zealand Y2K Readiness Commission Twelve out of 12 sectors monitored in New Zealand report no Y2K-related interruptions, says Basil Logan chairman of the New Zealand Y2K Readiness Commission in the Commissions 1am report. So far the detailed planning which has taken place across New Zealand is bearing fruit, Mr Logan says. There have been no confirmed reports so far from any of the key utilities or essential services of any Y2K-related problem, however issues could take some time to show up. The Y2K Readiness Commission will continue to monitor the situation and will be giving a further report at 2.00am. All information and updates will be available on the Commissions website at www.y2k.govt.nz

One water plant failed in NZ. They said possibly "wind". Yep, they actually said wind. Wind shut down the whole plant. Only time I've heard of that was when hurricane Floyd shut down Portsmouth, VA's water plant. Go figure.
