Cyclone Gita!

Earlier in the week New Zealand caught the tail end of Cyclone Gita. In parts of the South Island there was flooding and a state of emergency was declared in some places including Christchurch. One family near the Abel Tasman at the top of the South Island had to swim through flood water to safety..
