    Anyone caught up in NZ Floods?

    Has anyone been caught up in the Lower North Island Floods? Thankfully my house is ok as we don't live near a river! Here's a few pics from www.nzoom.com. 100+ million clean up and we're forcast for even more heavy rain this afternoon

    Not so bad but Shrewsbury have had shedloads of floods and the very recent ones (like a few weeks ago) were pretty bad. Not a patch on those ones though. Not fun.

    The weather is back. There is some storm sweeping up the North Island. Currently it really windy in Auckland, but I suspect the wind will be here soon...

    The reservoirs on Exmoor are still low after the summer, apparently we will get some prolonged stuff for once it warms up.... ill believe that when i see it..

    Can we swap the heat of the Gold Coast for some of the rain in NZ?
