NZ Disaster Aid Local Emergency

On Thursday 6 April the EBOP was hit by a ‘once in 500 year’ flood. A breach of the Rangitāiki River stopbank at Edgecumbe resulted in the declaration of a State of Emergency in the Whakatāne District and an order to evacuate the town. That evacuation affected some 580 households and a population of approximately 1600 people.

The communities of Taneatua, Rūātoki, Ruatahuna, Te Whaiti, Ngaputahi and Waimana have been affected by flooding and slips. Getting assistance and support to those areas is a priority.

Money raised through the appeal will be used to fund applications made to the Mayoral Relief Fund. It will be weeks before many houses are liveable, and months before areas of the EBOP have fully recovered. It is vital that no individual or family falls through the cracks.
