Eastern Bay of Plenty schools to close

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 11/04/2017

All 57 schools and about 80 early learning services in Eastern Bay of Plenty have been advised to close on Wednesday as a precaution ahead of further wet weather.

With heavy rain forecast to hit the region from about midday, the Ministry of Education says there is concern further flooding will close roads already affected by slips from last week's bad weather.

It says the advised closures in Whakatane, Opotiki and Kawerau districts are for Wednesday only and the situation will be reassessed in the afternoon.
