Hawkes Bay Flooding
“When it rains heavily I’m always alert."
The surrounding area is completely submerged under mud and silt.
Flash flooding in the small town north of Napier took the life of two-year-old Ivy Collins.
“It’s going to take years to recover.”
“We knew it was coming and to be ready, but no one knew how bad it was going to be here.”
The storm is moving out to sea but not before belting parts of the North Island.
