The deluge on Thursday led to surface flooding in Palmerston North and the surrounding areas, and Palmerston North City Council staff were working to fix the problems. Some streets in Palmerston North were flooded and water had to be pumped into the Kawau Stream. There was also surface flooding and a burst manhole at Bunnythorpe where sewage had leaked out. There was surface flooding on Waughs Rd in Feilding and there was rain on the other side of the ranges. There was a lot of surface flooding so parents were contacted at 2pm to collect their children.
