skywatch Friday:




Torrential & heavy rain across parts of the country. A state of emergency remains in place in the Nelson and Tasman areas after heavy rain flooded homes, caused landslides and road closures and forced the evacuation of more than 100 people overnight.

The front bringing the downpours today moved over the North Island, closing roads and causing surface flooding in Northland.

The owner renovating his house must be praying the tarp is hole proof despite the tape at more than one part.

My son counted, we had 10 days of rain. He can't wait to go surfing.

I feel sorry for those people.

Oh gosh! What is that in the first picture, part of the covered up house? I hope it stops soon!

Ann said...

Yes, that is a big tent for a house. I went to see it many times, I don't see people fixing it. Now is definitely not the right time to fix houses,


Today, 11th day, I see some sun. But in Nelson, they have giant clean up. Some residents compare it with a mini tsunami.

Sounds like you're having scary weather conditions! Hope it will be over soon.

Hi Ann, I saw this flooding on the world news tonight. I hope you and your family stay safe and the rains end soon.

Ann,
It's raining here in M'sia too as it's the north east monsoon season now.
