Turns out I didnt quite miss it. Had to rush up the Coromandel to fix a customers system , large slip on the road on the way back.
The local river is very high, but below the town and my land. It appears this cyclone had very localised heavy rainfall, very high river flow upstream on the river , but the rain gauges in the towns around show little rainfall.

Thank you for telling us about conditions where you are, David. I hope the railways didn't get any more damage.

Last week I was staying in South Sudan with a nun from New Zealand. She is not a railfan herself, but she knows of my interest, and she took great delight in regaling me with stories of the beauty of New Zealand's railway routes.
