Civil Defence 'failing' to give Port Hills residents vital info

From Morning Report, 6:10 am on 20 February 2017

Christchurch residents evacuated from their homes because of the Port Hills fire say Civil Defence is still failing to give them vital information.

The agency has again been criticised for poor communication after promising to lift its game following a heated meeting with homeowners yesterday morning.

Angry residents whose homes remain behind cordons say information isn't being well-circulated, and their best source is the rumour mill.
