Stay safe! Preparing for Cyclone Gabrielle

As you may have heard in the news or seen on social media – a big storm is coming. Cyclone Gabrielle is heading towards Aotearoa and its first effects are expected to be felt in Northland on Sunday (12th Feb 2023). It has intensified into a category 3 (severe) tropical cyclone. We have faced the devasting effect and aftermath of the previous rains, so let’s brace ourselves this time. While this is mother nature and we can’t control it – we can help ourselves and others by preparing for it.

What you can do:

  1. Secure your home (roof, surroundings and anything you think may be at risk from high winds or heavy rain).

  2. Sort out a list of supplies you might need (but don’t go overboard!) and a first-aid kit.

  3. Prepare a ‘grab and go’ bag with essentials you might need in case you are forced to evacuate
