From Midday Report, 12:44 pm on 26 January 2024

Just a week after a deluge pummelled Westland, closing roads and sparking a local state of emergency, another heavy rain warning has been issued for the region.

The orange warning is due to take effect from 9pm Friday and go through until 9 Saturday morning.

Westland mayor Helen Lash says tourists are being put off visiting and local businesses are taking a hit.

Lash spoke to Charlotte Cook.
