Ashburton flooding: Farmer on lasting damage

From Morning Report, 8:40 am on 24 June 2021

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is due to visit flood-stricken farmers frantically trying to clear silt and debris before calving and lambing begins.

Ardern will be hosted by Chris and Anne-Marie Allan, who say their 360-hectare property looks like a tsunami has gone through it, more than three weeks since torrential rain saw a state of emergency declared.

Chris Allan spoke to Susie Ferguson from the farm.
