NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 15/04/2016

Trampers in Fiordland are being warned about rising rivers and possible landslips as heavy rains loom over the region.

The MetService has issued a severe weather warning for the popular tourist area for Saturday evening, saying up to 100mm or rain could fall overnight and urging trampers to beware of streams and rivers rising quickly and that nearby land may become unstable.

The rain was expected to gradually weaken on Sunday, the service said.
