December 2011 Floods

In Mid-December 2011, 48 hours of heavy rainfall led to severe flooding and slips across the Nelson Tasman region.  A State of Emergency was declared and homes and properties had to be evacuated. Arterial routes such as Rocks Road were closed and rural areas were temporarily cut off by surface flooding and landslides.   

The Takaka 48-hour rainfall was more than twice as much as had previously been recorded in the town. (according to records for the past 50 years).
