Buller situation update #2

6th March, 2015

The current weather situation has subsided and surface flooding is dropping. However, further heavy rainfall is forecast for the Buller in the early hours of tomorrow morning.

Buller Civil Defence encourages residents to make provisions and to prepare themselves as much as possible.

Motorists are encouraged to reduce traffic volume on the roads in particular those areas with surface flooding. Vehicles driving through the surface water are causing waves to hit houses and cause further damage. If a street or road is blocked or coned off, please do not drive into this area.

“Residents need to check their properties and check on their neighbours” comments Mayor Garry Howard.

Buller Civil Defence is deactivating it’s Emergency Operation Centre at this time. The situation will be monitored over the next 24 hours and updates will be provided if required.
