New Zealand evacuates people ahead of Cyclone Cook

Irune Rengel | 16 Abril, 2017, 10:44

"Cook is expected to approach Coromandel Peninsula during the afternoon, then moving onshore near western Bay of Plenty early this evening".

The BBC's Hywel Griffith says the Bay of Plenty, which suffered flooding last week caused by the tail end of Cyclone Debbie, is expecting 300mm (11in) of rain to fall, which means some houses may be flooded again.

Major holiday routes are closed by slips today and holidaymakers are being warned to stay off the roads unless it is absolutely essential.

The ministry said: "This is an extremely serious weather event".

New Zealanders are bracing themselves for what is anticipated to be one of the country's worst storms in years.

Cyclone Cook's heavy rains followed on from flooding caused by ex-tropical Cyclone Debbie, which hit New Zealand last week after causing widespread damage on Australia's northeast coast.

"The increased chance of additional flooding from further rain would make this task more hard".
