Useful update with map of affected area.Timaru District Council Civil Defence update

A State of Emergency remains in place for the Pleasant Point-Temuka Ward, focused on a section of riverbank that has been damaged near Mill Road in the Kerrytown area. Please see area shown on attached map.

Current information from Environment Canterbury has confirmed that the stop bank is still holding.

All affected residents have been contacted and supported to evacuate and are currently staying with family and friends in the area.

A cordon remains in place and current our immediate concern continues to relate to the safety and wellbeing of the community.

It is really important that people stay clear of the cordon and resist the desire to inspect the damage. We will keep residents informed of the situation and when they may be able to return to their homes.

ECAN engineers are currently assessing the stop bank and we will provide further updates as they come to light.

The Opihi River is currently sitting at 206 cumecs at Opihi State Highway 1, which has been sitting constant at this level for the last 8 hours.

State of Emergency declared.

The Timaru District Council has declared a State of Emergency for the Pleasant Point- Temuka Ward.

This is due to a risk of flooding in a specific section of the Ward following damage to a stop bank along the South side of the Opihi River between Butlers Road and Kerrytown Road. Extensive scouring of the stop bank poses a flooding risk with potential to be a threat to life and property.

All residents in the affected area have been contacted by NZ Police who have assisted them to evacuate.

Security has been put in place for the affected area.

The Timaru District Council Emergency Operations Centre will continue to monitor the situation in liaison with Environment Canterbury and partner agencies.

A further update will be provided on Thursday morning during business hours.

Timaru Civil Defence: Weather warning update

A notice for all Timaru District residents – we are expecting a significant weather event from Sunday evening through to Tuesday. This will see heavy rainfall inland east of the Southern Alps, leading to increasing river flows affecting low-lying areas.

The rain may spread further east to foothill or coastal areas. In addition, it is likely that there will be severe northwest winds, possibly up to 150km per hour inland and 120km per hour further east.

We encourage all residents in low-lying areas, particularly those next to rivers, to look at what they will need to do if the situation deteriorates. Have a plan to look after animals, protect property and be prepared if flooding should occur.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will provide updates as further information is received. You can find out more here:
