Buller District Council

Orange weather watch. 6pm update

31st May, 2022
You would have seen the orange weather warning put in place.
This is for 32 hours from 10pm tonight until 6am on Thursday morning.
Buller and West Coast Emergency Management are monitoring the weather.
While we do not wish to cause concern, we would rather take a few proactive steps should the forecast change.
We are providing sand and bags should people wish to prepare.
Sand has been delivered at the following sites:
– Westport Domain at the Buller bridge
– Craddock Rugby Park
– Pulse Energy Centre – by the courts
– Rayner Park
There will be more available with subsequent deliveries in the morning.
Ask friends or neighbours to help if you may have trouble filling these.
Council staff have been in touch with community civil defence coordinators across Buller to give them a heads up.
We know a lot of you will be feeling anxious and we want to let you know we are in this together. We will keep you updated.
