One-in-a-100-year storm in Christchurch

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:21 pm on 5 March 2014

Andrea Cummings' home in Burwood has become a bit of an unoffical welfare centre. Andrea has an elderly neighbour whose red-zoned house was surrounded by waist-deep water. With the help of the local fire brigade she was able to get her neighbour out of her home and to safety. Andrea Cummings is the chairwoman of the Burwood Pegasus Community Board.
