Sandbags available as a precaution on the on the West Coast

Sandbags available 


With an extended period of adverse weather expected over the next few days and into the long weekend, Westland District Council is making sandbags available as a precaution to businesses and residents in areas of Hokitika identified as likely to be worst affected by potential surface flooding and cars causing bow waves.

To assist people and reduce the likelihood of water entering premises, there will be pallets with sandbags available for use. 

West Coast Emergency Management advise if there is surface flooding, please avoid driving in these areas to reduce the bow waves sending water off the road and onto the pavements and surrounding premises.
