Buller District Council

Evacuation Zones Extended

10th February, 2022
Good evening Buller
Previous rainfall in the upper catchment is still making its way down the Buller River. We expect it to peak in the next few hours. We do not anticipate this to be a significant issue – we are constantly monitoring the levels.
However as a result of this additional information, we have decided to add to the mandatory evacuation order.
People who live on these additional streets need to evacuate immediately:
· Domett Street between Larsen and Mill Streets
· Colvin Street
· Riley Place
· Gothard Place
· Scanlon Place
· Rintoul Street between Derby and Colvin Streets
· Fonblanque St between Derby and Colvin Steets
If you require assistance to evacuate – please call us on 0800 234 533 or speak to our staff on the ground.
Please take your pets and medications and anything you need to overnight on higher ground – your homes are at risk from flooding.
If you are unable to stay with family or friends, evacuation centres are open at South School and Carter’s Beach Top 10 (campervans and caravans can be taken there).
