NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 25/09/2016

Coromandel Peninsula road information:

* Wharekara River bridge on SH25 at Opoutere is down to one lane because of high river levels.

* SH25 Kuaotunu West, three large slips covering road.

* Stop-go control on SH25 between Prescott's Garage and Tairua because of flooding on the highway. Some vehicles are being allowed through.

* Hikuai Settlement Rd, closed due to flooding.

* Port Jackson Rd, Ohinewai ford, closed.

Other issues:

* No water supply in Hikutaia and Omahu Valley Rd area because a valve is blocked and unreachable because of high river levels

The heavy rain is expected to continue until Monday morning, bringing another forecasted 100mm of rain on top of what's already fallen on Sunday morning.

Civil Defence is advising people to avoid waterways and if travelling take extreme care as there is debris on roads from lots of minor slips. Travel should be avoided until Monday if possible.
