The Temporary Accommodation Service was activated on 16 February 2018 in response to ex-tropical cyclone Fehi, and on 2 March 2018 for ex-tropical cyclone Gita. Portable cabins were deployed while repairs were undertaken, allowing people to stay in their neighbourhoods and engaged with their community. This event has now been resolved.
Ex-tropical cyclones Fehi and Gita
Severe weather as a result of ex-tropical cyclones Fehi and Gita bought significant rainfall to the West Coast, Nelson and Tasman regions, leading to homes being flooded.
