Heavy rain overnight has caused flooding in several areas of Christchurch, including by the Heathcote River and Oxford Tce. Many instances are being reported of cars being water logged especially when parked next to rivers, and people being stuck in their homes due to flooded driveways.

With the already saturated ground and flooding, Christchurch City Council Civil Defence and Emergency Management Manager, Brenden​ Winder, said it was likely there would be more surface flooding and slips in hillside areas.
“Strong easterly winds are forecast to accompany the rain, which may create issues with estuary and river levels, particularly around high tide on Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning.”

What you need to know:
- There are multiple road closures in the central city, including parts of Fitzgerald Ave and Cambridge Tce
- Some schools – including Christchurch Girls’ High, Hillmorton High, and St Thomas of Canterbury College – are asking students to work from home as flooding has made it difficult to access classrooms
- Council advises to clear leaves from sumps or drains on your property only if it is safe to do so
- If you come into contact with flood water, treat it as contaminated and wash your hands thoroughly afterwards
- Move cars, valuables and electrical items out of reach of potential flood water.
- In case of high winds, secure umbrellas, BBQs and outdoor furniture.

Council staff and contractors are ready to respond to issues and the council’s contact centre is open around-the-clock for residents who need help. To stay up to date with road closures and council updates, check the Christchurch City Council website.
