Coromandel Weather Update #10

Coromandel Weather Update #10

A further severe weather warning for the southern Coromandel Peninsula is in place with further periods of heavy rain today and possible thundery downpours easing tonight or early Friday morning. Possibility of a further 120mm around the Kaimai Range.

Greg Ryan, Waikato CDEM Group advises that there has been some moderate flooding in some of our smaller streams overnight (e.g. Tairua and Kauaeranga), however this was not as severe as Tuesday night, with no significant problems reported. With the severe weather warning in place until Friday morning, there is the potential for these streams to come up again.

There is now also a focus on the larger rivers, and in particular the Waihou River, which is currently rising at Te Aroha. River monitoring stations upstream of Te Aroha are showing historically high levels, which will start moving through the system over the next couple of days.

Water Outages

Matatoki has no water - We have spoken with Veolia Water and they are unable to get in to fix the problem due to trees/branches down but are working on getting in so they can restore water to Matatoki.

Pukeahu Park : ANZAC 100th Anniversary Dawn Service In Pictures

Roughly 18,000 people gathered this morning at Pukeahu Memorial Park for the Anzac day centenary. Anticipating the large turnout, patrons arrived as early as 4.30. It was virtually impossible to get near the Memorial after 5am. By 6, the crowds on Taranaki Street had stretched as far back as the Z Petrol station.

The screens erected around the park displayed the live events to those who had turned up. The heat generated by the huge number of people caused many to take a turn. Medics and ambulances were on hand for the fainting crowd members. Only twenty minutes into the ceremony, one medic said they had already dealt with 15 to 20 spells. More>>
