Oreti River flooding

April 26, 2010

This is quite a cool photo of the Oreti River found on Flickr thanks to PhillipC. This is where my water comes from.

Though bet it doesn’t look like this right now given flooding in the region. Southland rivers are up to 5 metres above normal flows and near Lumsden the Oreti is apparently about 10cm off spilling its banks. Read the Southland Times story. Hopefully flooding won’t prevent me from getting back to Invercargill tomorrow!
