A total of 70 mls with no damage, that’s a good rain.
UPDATE: Good for us but further north, in South Canterbury, they’ve had far too much of a good thing:
Torrential rain caused flooding across South Canterbury yesterday and by 10pm last night the Te Ngawai had reached a 50-year flood level, flowing at 1000 cumecs.
Wet conditions are forecast for the rest of the week.
Much of the region experienced more than 90 millimetres of rain – significantly more than the 75mm average total rainfall for the month. Rainfall of 180mm was recorded in some areas. Most rivers experienced flows of 10- to 20-year return periods. . .
Some roads are closed and the forecast is for more rain.
