17 December 2014

Surface flooding on roads and around properties is being reported around the Coromandel this afternoon.

Wentworth Valley Rd has water flowing across the road and the road is closed.

Port Jackson Rd north of Ongohi bridge - the fords are flooded and we've put signs at Driving Creek Rd to let people know that the road is closed.

Mangatu Rd (Coromandel area) has water flowing across the road and it is closed until the tide recedes.

The rest are passable but in some places like Prescotts Garage, Hikuai, the surface water is at the road edge. There's also surface flooding at Opoutere and surface flooding at the Northern entrance to Whangamata. These places are still passable but we're asking motorists to drive to the conditions and with caution.

High tide was at 4pm.
