Kōrero: Floods

Edgecumbe flood, 2017

Around 50 flooded suburban houses and a broken stop bank.

Following heavy rain from the remnants of Cyclone Debbie, the stopbank protecting Edgecumbe from the Rangitāiki River was breached on the morning of 6 April 2017. The town flooded rapidly, giving residents just minutes to escape from their homes.
