Current Information

Let's talk about flooding

Floods are New Zealand’s number one hazard in terms of frequency, losses, and declared civil defence emergencies. Floods can be caused by storms and heavy rain that cause rivers to overflow their banks; or street drains can become blocked causing urban flooding. Floods can cause injury and loss of life; damage to properties and infrastructure; loss of livestock and crops; and contamination of water and land.
