Pumps working 24 hours to drain water from Edgecumbe

From Morning Report, 8:13 am on 10 April 2017

We talk to the Bay of Plenty Regional Council Duty Flood Manager, Pete Blackwood. He says they're trying hard to get the water out of Edgecumbe - up to 100 pumps are likely to come to the town as they try to drain the water away before more rain arrives. "We will find a way. We will make certain we'll get that water off those lower houses."
