Waimakariri Riverbed Alert

 

This was recorded at 5-30 am Sunday My 3

Around 100mm of rain has fallen along the Main Divide, more along the ridge line which will cause the Alpine fed rivers to be moderately higher than usual today. Riverbed visitors are advised to take care, particularly in the beds of the Waimakariri, Hurunui, Waiau, Rakaia, and Rangitata Rivers.
