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

Digital Evolution: Scoop Independent News Launches "Operation Chrysalis"
From today Scoop is beginning a process of public consultation with the political, business and civil society groups it has served for the past 15 and a half years.
"It is hoped that in time - with new leadership and increased community engagement - the chrysalis will incubate a new kind of Scoop, one which can sustainably continue Scoop's Mission 'to be an agent of positive change'", says Scoop Founder, Editor and Publisher Alastair Thompson.
"As big publishing shrivels, public participation in contributing and spreading news has grown. Scoop has evolved with this wave by providing an independent platform, committed to upholding democracy, providing a voice to all, and providing the public easy access to information about decisions which affect them."
