Scott Simpson MP has been to the north of the Coromandel Peninsula to see the hardest-hit areas after recent storms. This is what he found out.
Mud, mud and more mud. That’s one of my lasting impressions of the damage caused by storms that have wreaked havoc in Northern Coromandel. This is the scene; Pohutukawa ripped from the earth and tossed across paddocks by strong winds. Mud-covered rocks washed downhill, now blocking roads and covering what had been productive paddocks. A concrete bridge broken and sagging across a flooded brown river. Huge logs pulverised by car-sized boulders. The ground is strewn with branches and trees snapped by high winds and sent flying. It’s wet and still very mucky under foot.
