RSOE EDIS Event Report

Extreme Weather New Zealand Northern Island, [Region-wide] Damage level Details

……….

Extreme Weather in New Zealand on Monday, 21 September, 2015 at 02:51 (02:51 AM) UTC.

Description
Civil Defence said surface flooding had been reported across wide areas of the Gisborne region, with trees down in many places. “Motorists are advised to take extra care on the roads around the district today as rain continues to fall and rivers north and west of Gisborne city rise,” Gisborne Civil Defence said. State Highway 35 had been closed around the East Cape between Waihau Bay and Tolaga Bay. “This morning, a car was overcome by floodwaters at Rototahi south of Tolaga Bay and a bus, with no children on board, was stuck at the top of the Waimata Valley.” Civil Defence said no more information was available about either incident. Areas north of Gisborne had received more rain than forecast, with around 140mm falling in 24 hours. There are concerns the rising Kankanaia River could cause the closure of SH2 – the inland route between Gisborne and Opotiki – at Waipaoa, northwest of Gisborne.

Rain closes roads and damages crops around Gisborne

Extensive flooding up to 1m deep in the Gisborne region will likely cause headaches for horticulturists and grapegrowers, after the onslaught of heavy rain continued overnight.

Heavy downpours yesterday prompted the evacuation of a handful of households, forced the closure of rural schools and left dozens of homes without power.

A large number of roads in the region remain closed today due to surface flooding and slips.

Gisborne Civil Defence Controller Jon Davies said although the rain had eased and moved south, rivers remained high and would take some time to fall.
