More Info →Flooding in Te Awe Awe Street

Two people boating in the floodwaters, taken from outside 147 Te Awe Awe Street, Palmerston North. The Manawatu River flooded about 250 hectares of the city. A stop bank between Fitzroy Street and Jickell Street had been constructed but it proved inadequate.
