Kaikoura region damage and hut closures
Earthquake activity and subsequent heavy rain has caused multiple slips and dams to form in Kaikoura, the Seaward Kaikoura Range and Isolated Hill Scenic Reserve. These are unstable and can fail at any time.
Stay clear of all riverbeds in these areas in case there are any sudden releases of water.
Closed huts: Isolation Hut, Isolated Hill Bivvy, Napoleon Bivvy, Brian Boru Bivvy and Zoo Hut in Isolated Hill Scenic Reserve.
See Environment Canterbury and this website for updates.
This is a long-term alert until at least October 2018.
