State of Emergency Terminated for Buller District

With the severe weather warnings now lifted for Buller and the storm over the State of Emergency was lifted at 12.25pm.

Emergencies services have all now returned to business as usual.

The EOC will remain open but with minimal staffing to focus on recovery and welfare, which is what was in operate prior to this event as a result of Fehi.  The welfare centre at NBS is now closed.  Any welfare enquiries should still be directed to 03 789 7999

Buller Civil Defence wish to again thank residents for cooperating with emergency responders and all the welfare agencies, emergency services and volunteers who have given their time to assist.   This has contributed to the smooth management of this event and the district making it through relatively unscathed.

Any further updates on will be posted on the Buller Civil Defence Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/BullerCD/
