A win­ter won­der­land in July

Feilding-Rangitikei Herald - - Our District News -

Last week, our dis­trict was hit by a se­vere weather event. Snow hit the north­ern re­gion re­sult­ing in a num­ber of power out­ages, while sur­face flood­ing and slips caused a num­ber of road clo­sures. We ap­pre­ci­ated your pa­tience while the graders were out in full force to clear the blocked roads due to the snow.

It was great to see chil­dren, pets and adults mak­ing the most of the weather and the school hol­i­days.

Events such as these are a per­fect re­minder to check you have a fam­ily emer­gency kit with all of your es­sen­tial sur­vival items up-to-date. These should in­clude items such as a torch with spare bat­ter­ies, blan­kets, a ra­dio, a first aid kit and enough food and wa­ter to last for at least three days.
