Water Receding But Council on
Stand-by for Tonight
The rain has stopped
allowing the water levels that have been causing problems
around the Ruapehu district including flooding in Ohakune to
start to recede.
Ruapehu District Council (RDC) has stood
down the Welfare Centre in the Ohakune Primary School hall
at this time.
The MET Service has forecast further
rainfall for tonight and so Ruapehu District Council will be
keeping a close watch on the situation.
RDC staff will
remain on stand-by and will reactivate the EOC if the
Council is asking Ruapehu residents to
phone in any flooding or other storm related issues to 0800
