In the past few days we’ve had about 18mm rain with another 20 forecast for today. Up in the hills though it’s been raining a lot more.
The paddocks beside Waikawa Beach Road are starting to look more like lakes, and the river at the footbridge is flowing swift and strong.
Where the last few weeks we’ve had a long lazy loop between the groyne and the sea, the river has now broken through the sandbar to flow straight out.
BTW: MetService are forecasting significant swells in the next few days.
