Canterbury continues to be hammered with rain, after a weekend which saw rivers throughout the region reach record highs, homes and roads flooded, and bridges washed away.

South Canterbury around Ashburton has been hit particularly hard, with officials keeping a close eye on river levels today. People have also been evacuated in North Canterbury, where rivers continue to rise.

We’re thinking of all our customers affected by the flooding, with local teams working with people directly affected. If you have concerns about your Kāinga Ora home and any weather damage, please call our customer support centre on 0800 801 601.
