Are you prepared for the wild weather?

Red Cross - Gisborne Service Centre

With the wild weather hitting many parts of New Zealand today, it’s important to be prepared for widespread flooding, heavy rain, slips, and wind damage. You can be prepared by ensuring your emergency kits are fully-stocked and you’ve got plenty of water.

* Find out which items to put in your emergency kit
* Keep an eye on MetService weather updates for more information. Remember to check in on your neighbours to make sure they’re OK. Stay safe on the roads, and consider altering your Easter travel plans.

With hundreds of Bay of Plenty residents already hit hard with severe flooding, we’ve launched an appeal to help. Many families will never be able to return to their homes. 100% of donations will go to those in need, please donate now.

Stay safe!

Poll: What do you think of CCTV on private homes?

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

I'm writing a story about CCTV security cameras on homes, what's the best system, how to install them, and whether or not they're a useful deterrent.
I wondered what you thought about private security cameras. Are they good for the neighbourhood? Or a sign troubled communities?
If you've got a strong opinion about them, drop me a line and let me know what you think.
