Locals are being asked to be prepared as Cyclone Gabrielle approaches New Zealand.
While the cyclone’s exact path is unknown, it is likely to hit the upper North Island on Monday and is forecast to bring significant severe weather with high winds and heavy rain.
MetService has warned very large waves and a storm surge was expected to affect northern and eastern coastlines from Northland to Gisborne from Sunday into Monday.
While there are no warnings in place for the Wairoa district at this stage, people in isolated areas are urged to generally be aware and be prepared.
