150 school children have been evacuated from Camp Adair in the Hunua Ranges due to sudden flooding. 

Access to the camp was blocked by a fallen tree and flooding on Falls Road which is currently being cleared. 

The children were on a school trip, and were due to leave the camp tomorrow. All are reported to be safe and well, and emergency services are leading the evacuation with military support.

The children will be transported to Hunua School, and from there they will be taken back to their school via organised transport.

Earlier today the YMCA Camp Adair was evacuated to Hunua School and now all Camp Adair children have returned home (or to their schools).
