Update on Effects of Ex-Cylone Gita
A State of Emergency has been declared in Christchurch with the full impact of ex-Cyclone Gita still to come on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Streets have already been closed in flood-prone areas with self-evacuations during daylight hours recommended.
Adverse weather, flight cancellations and traffic restrictions on some upper South Island roads are likely to impact on freight delivery times over the next few days. The unpredictable weather and risk of flooding of residential areas could also impact on our Christchurch staffing levels tomorrow.
We thank you for your understanding as we continue to monitor the situation. Further advice will be provided as it comes to hand.
