    MetService has cranked up the urgency of its message to the South Island

    MetService has cranked up the urgency of its message to the South Island


    It's released an Orange Warning for Buller, Westland, Fiordland and the headwaters of Canterbury and Otago lakes and rivers.

    It's designed to tell people they need to be prepared and take action.

    In this case the warning concerns heavy rain...although it's also going to be windy in Fiordland gusts are expected to reach 120 in exposed places.

    The worst should be over by tomorrow.
