Weather: Extra food supplies headed to stranded tourists

From Morning Report, 8:10 am on 9 December 2019

Extra food supplies will be flown in to Franz Josef over the next few days to ensure the 900 tourists trapped there and local residents don't run out.

The town is cut off from the north and the south and not likely to be reconnected with the rest of the country until at least Friday.

RNZ reporter Conan Young is in Franz Josef and speaks to Kim Hill.
