Traveling on the road towards Motueka, the damage done by the storm soon became apparent.

However, the worst damage was on the Takaka Hill itself.  Houses and property destroyed, and the road totally closed to traffic.  Rod’s sister and her husband live near the foot of the hill closest to Motueka, and we were able to get through to them past the roadblocks.  Initially their driveway had been destroyed and water supply cut off, but work parties had rebuilt a temporary driveway and set up a water supply for them.
