Some Kaipara residents spend third night in evac centres

Returning north to Dargaville now, to the swamped town of Kaipara, where some residents spent a third night in evacuation centres. The call was made yesterday evening for people who live near the Wairoa River, in the centre of town, to evacuate again last night. The head of Runanga o Ngati Whatua, Antony Thompson, says a large swathe of town was flooded yet again, though it wasn’t as bad as previous nights.
