So we had a call from our friendly flood protection officer from the regional council. MetService has issued a Severe Weather Warning for heavy rain in the Tararua Ranges and Wairarapa, but we're expecting some of that to spill over into our catchment area too, so the streams in the areas of Grays Road, and Pauatahanui/Judgeford area may rise a fair bit.
If you come across flooding or slips on any of the roads in the area, and warning signs or road cones aren't set up yet, please don't hesitate to contact Porirua City Council and let us know - we can't fix things if we don't know what's happened! The number is 237-5089 and it's a 24-hr number.
We've also got a Severe Weather Watch for gales, so it may get windy tomorrow.
This all the same weather system that dumped on Gisborne - http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/3891925/Gisborne-deluge-cuts-power-to-dozens
EDIT: Friday 9/7/10 - The strong southerly winds are expected to continue during Friday, easing later in the day.
