Wellington Region Emergency Management monitoring Cyclone LUSI
Wellington Region Emergency Management Office (WREMO) is encouraging people to stay abreast of developments in respect of Cyclone LUSI this weekend.
Group Controller Bruce Pepperell says that the full brunt of the Cyclone is likely to miss the greater Wellington Region, but residents should be vigilant when traveling and take basic precautions at home. This should include having an emergency kit, ensuring drains and gutters run freely plus securing outdoor furniture and fittings. People should also have back up plans in case there are power outages.
Emergency Management staff are continuing to monitor the situation and will advise if further precautions are warranted. In the meantime residents are advised to continue to listen to local radio stations for local weather forecasts and updates and to also take note of any warnings that are issued.
