Wairoa has been significantly impacted by river flooding as a result of Cyclone Gabrielle.
Hundreds of people have been evacuated.
We are managing but we are geographically isolated and facing severe challenges. These include food and water supply, fuel and communications.
We are working to ensure people’s safety and trying to provide the best services we can given our limitations.
Please note: This communication was made available as the Emergency Operations Centre has activated Starlink, an standalone wifi connection that is only accessible to the Emergency Operations Centre. The rest of the District is still without access to mobile and wifi connections.
