Residents are being requested to evacuate an area of the Lower Wairau.
This is from the Neal Road Bridge to Chaytors Road, Connollys Road, Wairau Bar Road and Dicks Road.
This is due to a probable stopbank breach by Ferry Road bridge.
The only access out of the area is Neal Road, towards Rarangi as SH1 is closed at the Wairau Bridge. There is an evacuation centre set up at the Rarangi Fire Station.
