Thousands flee flooding in NZ

Severe flooding forced thousands of residents in New Zealand’s South Island to flee their homes yesterday and left hundreds of tourists stranded at the remote Milford Sound beauty spot. The Southland region declared a state of emergency after being deluged with more than 1,000 mm of rainfall in 60 hours, triggering landslides on major roads and causing rivers to burst their banks. Residents in the low-lying area were advised to grab medication, clothing and identification documents, then head to higher ground.
