Pays to double check where you camp

Thankfully, this family escaped with their lives, but it could have easily been a tragedy.

If you are out camping or tramping, it pays to keep an eye on the weather reports, especially any severe weather warnings from the MetService. If it's raining, be wary of rising river levels, and don't pitch your tent on river terraces & floodplains, otherwise you might find yourself in a similarly unfortunate situation.
