The current modelling shows that the Waipaoa River will peak at the 6.5-7.0m level at 7.00pm and stay at this level for
12 hours before slowly going down.
This is well below the level that Te Karaka is cut off and requires evacuation however if more heavy rain is received
then this may change.
The rivers gauges in the upper Waipaoa catchment have peaked and are now going down.
