State of emergency declared in Whanganui District
People in Whanganui are being told to brace themselves for flooding that authorities fear will be worse than

, as the remnants of ex-Cyclone Debbie hit New Zealand.
A state of emergency has been declared in the district, and in nearby Rangitikei.
Heavy rain warnings are in place for much of the central North Island, including Gisborne, Coromandel, Hawke's Bay and Taranaki, as well as Auckland and Wairarapa.
