Subject: RE: BS: when you don't have electricity - NZ
Although a national emergency was called, some parts of NZ got off lightly but the eastern part of the North Island was the worst hit. BUT, if the forestry debris had not washed down the rivers, the bridges would have been still standing and the stop banks should have held. I'm not sure if the power station might have been drowned - where it is positioned, probably that might still have happened.
