Displaced families in Hawke’s Bay say

they’re wondering where to turn next after a month in temporary accommodation.

More than 1000 homes are still yellow and red-stickered following the cyclone, and local leaders are seeking clarity from Government agencies.

The Waipatu Marae has become a refuge; a month on from Cyclone Gabrielle, there are still 25 whānau members living at the marae.

Tane Tomoana has been assisting whānau with accommodation since the cyclone and said they lacked clear direction for the next steps.

“We actually have struggled to pin down who actually is responsible for how we do move on from here and there has been no consistent contact with any agency over any of this,” Tomoana said.
