Published on 17 August 2019


Only one road remains closed in Horowhenua due to flooding, being Okarito Avenue. Contractors remain on site to remove surface water and are working as quickly as possible to clear the road.

With the rain subsiding, a lot of the surface flooding has now receded.

The Horowhenua District Emergency Operations Centre has been deactivated at approximately 6.30pm on 17 August 2019.

We urge people to drive with caution while the roads are still wet.
