Marlborough Weather Event Update No 22

Published: Mon 26 Jul 2021 11:47 AM
The team at Marlborough’s Emergency Management Operations Centre is continuing to keep an eye on the weather situation which is expected to pass through the region quickly today.
The Emergency Management Operations Centre is fully operational and the team is continuing to liaise with MetService and NIWA for the latest weather information.
Marlborough Emergency Management Incident Controller Richard McNamara says although we are experiencing some rain, the information we have received suggests this will result in a small spike, not a major weather event like last week.
“We acknowledge that this may be unnerving for some people, particularly those who continue to deal with the aftermath of last week’s storm,” Mr McNamara said.
“The information we’ve received from MetService suggests the rain is expected to ease early this evening as it moves to the east,” he said.
Marlborough Roads crews are back out today working in the Marlborough Sounds and on other affected local roads.
