Christmas campers have been battling to keep themselves and their belongings dry after being pelted with relentless rain overnight at a popular Coromandel Peninsula holiday spot.
Between 150 people were evacuated from two holiday parks in the early hours of this morning and were taken to the Waihi Beach RSA.
Fire and Emergency NZ helped with the evacuations. Water has been knee-deep at the Beachaven Top 10 Holiday Park at Waihi Beach, with an emergency siren going off at about 3 am this morning.
