Dunedin gets Summer Flash Flooding :-)

Channel 9 Television almost went off air tonight, after a massive twenty minute downpour caused flash flooding around Dunedin. The heavy rain started just before our News presenter Nicky began reading the weather, and as she continued, the picture from our transmitter got fuzzier and fuzzier ;-)

Outside, the short but heavy burst caused huge problems around the city. Roads were turned into rivers, with cars literally floating in some parts of the city.

Shops and houses around town also suffered flooding. At the Smiths City store in the centre of town, staff said beds and lounge suites were floating inside.

Local retailers are blaming the council, who they believe have done little since a similar incident around three years ago.
