Jacinda Ardern tours 'devastating' New Zealand floods

Christchurch (New Zealand) (AFP) - New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern toured flood-hit areas of the country's South Island on Tuesday, expressing shock at the destruction left when three months' worth of rain fell in three days. Swollen rivers swept away bridges and landslides blocked highways in the deluge, which finally began to ease after a 72-hour barrage. While hundreds of people have been forced to evacuate, there have been no reports of serious injuries.
