Heavy snow causes chaos in Gisborne, New Zealand

Stranded motorists have spent the night in other people’s houses after roads around Gisborne closed as snow carpeted the region in a thick white blanket.

10 July 2015  – A severe weather warning is in place for Mohaka, while roads around Gisborne have been closed.

Lawrence and Liz Rau, deer farmers who live a kilometre out of Matawai, said their farm was “absolutely covered” in snow.

“It was as big as any we’ve had and I’ve lived here for about 38 years in the Matawai district.”
