New Zealand floods: Hundreds forced to evacuate


Recommended Posts

Hundreds of people have been forced to evacuate their homes after torrential rain pelted New Zealand for the third consecutive day.

Residents in parts of North Island found themselves isolated after landslides, fallen trees and floodwaters blocked highway access.

The stormy weather has also forced some schools to close, airlines to cancel flights and left entire streets submerged.

At least one boat sank during storms near Auckland and the downpours caused a home to slip down into a gully in the town of TÄhunanui.

Around 230 homes in the town of Nelson were evacuated on Wednesday and remained off-limits overnight after the Maitai River flooded. The military was pictured patrolling the area overnight.
