Heathcote River Floods

Christchurch City Council spokesman Terry Sefton says Eastern Terrace between Birdwood and Sandwich Roads is impassable and some parts of Palentine and Riverlaw terraces are covered in water.

High tide is due at 3.15pm, sparking fears the flooding could get worse.

Constant rain has also caused several slips on the hills around Christchurch. The Summit Road is closed between Dyers Pass and Mt Pleasant due to a slip at Rapaki and there are several smaller slips on Centaurus, Sumner and Dyers Pass Roads.
