Nelson resident's street looked like a river when it flooded

From Morning Report, 7:43 am on 18 August 2022

A resident who had to evacuate her Nelson home says her street was so flooded it ran like a river.

Teresa O'Connor lives on Nile Street, neighbouring the Maitai River. Civil Defence told Teresa, her husband, and their dog, to get out of their house with the flood waters edging ever closer yesterday afternoon.

She spoke to Corin Dann.
