Dunedin battens down hatches for overnight downpour

Dunedin City Council is opening a welfare centre for residents who may need to leave their homes this evening, with heavy rain forecast overnight for the region.

“From 8pm tonight, Council is welcoming residents who may not feel safe in their place of residence or just want a warm drink and some company to head over to the Mercy Room at the Catholic Social Services, 42 MacAndrew Road, South Dunedin,” Council said in a statement.

“The weather forecast is constantly changing. We expect an update from MetService at 10pm. Precautions will stay in place as we await further updates.

“We ask all Dunedin residents to stay home and stay safe, and keep off the road until the rain eases.”
