    Default Napier weather

    Has been raining heavily most of the day. Have just driven SWMBO to a 4.30pm appointment at her doctor's through it. Bit of a problem as a lot of surface flooding. If you know Kennedy Rd, it's almost impassable.

    Any other towns getting hit like this?

    6 weeks to the longest day and I’ve still got a jersey on.

    So much for “Global Warming”.
    Global Warming is Mann made.

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    I take no responsibility for the accuracy of any media links I quote.

    Kenj.....look at the news:

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/300...ding-and-slips

    Napier City Council said the amount of rain was affecting the city’s wastewater network.

    “In order to prevent an emergency discharge from the network into Ahuriri estuary, Napier City Council asks that the community flush toilets only when necessary, and hold off using showers, dishwashers or washing machines if possible.”

    My garden is ****ed. It's under a lake....and the backyard, even steps are awash from the downpour.
    Sparrows all over the place, to wet to fly, staggering into the garage and under the car etc........poor things.


    Toilet is up to the brim, we dare not flush....

    Yeh, it gets like that here. I have Lake Ken outside as well. The birds are phoning Uber to get home and it is drowning the snails in the garden.

    22C last week and 7C today and yesterday so back to having the fire alight, yet meant to be possibly 26C by the weekend. Also rained all day yesterday and heavy showers all day today. Don't know how many times I put my raincoat on and off today, a real pain when your trying to reclad the side of a house and fit new flashings to the roof to fix old leaks.

    Napier flooding: Deluge the second wettest day on record in 150 years
    Mayor Kirsten Wise last night declared a state of emergency.

    Napier received double its average monthly rainfall in the space of 24 hours, leading to widespread flooding and slips, and triggering a state of emergency. .

    Although the rain has now eased, the city is not out of the woods, with a rain watch on the area from 3pm Tuesday afternoon to 10am Wednesday morning.

    Hundreds of homes remain without power and some schools have been cancelled for Tuesday, and a Search and Rescue team from Palmerston North will help assess the damage.

    Napier received 124mm of rain in the 24 hours to 6am on Tuesday morning, twice the November monthly average of 66mm, said MetService meteorologist Thomas Adams.

    But the Napier City Council’s measurements were even higher, reporting the rainfall at 237mm, 423 per cent more than on a normal November day. This was not far off the record for the city, which was 297mm on June 3, 1963.

    While the rain on Tuesday was unlikely to be as heavy as Monday night, Adams urged caution as rivers in the area were running very high.

    MetService is also forecasting possible thunderstorms for northern Hawke’s Bay, so residents are urged to keep an eye on the news and expect delays if travelling.

    Fire and Emergency New Zealand (Fenz) area manager Ken Cooper said they received 300 calls regarding floods between 5pm Monday night and 3am Tuesday morning. Some 80 firefighters worked through the night.

    Emergency services encouraged people to stay with family and friends if they needed to evacuate, but about 60 people were at a welfare centre in Kennedy Park in the suburb of Marewa.

    Sixteen properties on Napier Hill had been badly damaged, and a Search and Rescue team was on Tuesday morning on its way from Palmerston North to work with Napier City Council to assess the damage.

    There was significant flooding in low-lying suburbs including Maraenui and Pirimai, and the Defence Force had assisted Fenz to assess these areas, Cooper said.

    The city remains under a State of Emergency, which was declared by Mayor Kirsten Wise on Monday night.

    Unison spokesperson Danny Gough said the electricity company had restored power to about 2000 houses Tuesday morning, but 680 properties were still without power. Crew were working this morning to restore it, after they were pulled out last night due to conditions, he said.

    Many schools have announced they won’t open on Tuesday, including Tamatea Primary, Porritt Primary, Tamatea Intermediate, Tamatea High and Fairhaven classes based at these school

    More raining coming, it's gone cloudy and dark again just now.
    Still a screwup, been up road and fences all over, cars pushed around, roads closed, our loo still dodgy, council knows but other priorities I guess.
    No poo floating over the section yet...but maybe after the next downpour.

    Cops all over, Unison all over, some still without power, slips up the hill, some woman got buried up to her neck in mud.
