South Island Floods

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:21 pm on 17 June 2013

All rivers from Milton north to the Waitaki River are swollen above flood level with all the rain. State Highway 1 is closed from the Waikouaiti River Bridge to the Karitane turnoff. Some travellers are holed up at the Maheno Tavern with the roads all around them flooded.
