GNS Science teams documenting landslides in North Island

From Morning Report, 6:41 am on 10 February 2023

GNS Science field teams have been documenting landslides across Auckland, Waikato and Bay of Plenty following the flooding last month. 

They say identifying areas that are at risk of landslides is an important part of preparing the country for future severe weather events. 

And with another big storm on the horizon, their surveying of potential risks could prove timely.

Landslide Duty Officer Kerry Leith spoke to Guyon Espiner.
