Flooding in Paeroa


The Bay of Plenty has had bits and pieces of rain and bad weather over Winter but last week when my daughter and I drove through the Hauraki District of Paeroa we saw first hand just how much more they have had than us. We stopped and turned off into a side road so I could take this photo. This area, above has the bridge over the water so people can drive to Auckland, usually the river just flows naturally but it looks like it had badly burst - in fact further to the left there was drainage which was bubbling high in the air, I think it was struggling to cope with it all.


And when I looked to our right here is the farmland up next door, thankfully the cows are safe in their paddocks and that the rain hadn't reached them. This area of land is quite flat and is quite prone to flooding.

Linking up with Skywatch Friday.

  3. The whole of that area and the Coromandel Peninsular seem to have been hit a lot by these storms lately. We are lucky as they have bi-passed us.
