The rough weather continues for North Island East Coast farmers with another couple of days of wet and windy weather forecast. The damage in Gisborne has been declared a Medium Adverse Event which opens up $150,000 in funding. We will hear from Gisborne Feds President Toby Williams later in Round Up. Hawkes Bay also got a hammering from rain and heavy sea swells and it stretched to Central Hawkes Bay where River levels rose so quickly and got so high in some areas that they were lapping at the bases of bridges. Central Hawkes Bay Mayor Alex Walker says at one stage 30 roads were closed simultaneously, some with serious damage.
