Green MP Steffan Browning flew south after Monday morning’s 7.8 magnitude quake. He documented his time assessing the recovery and relief efforts.
I got to Kaikōura as early as possible following Monday’s earthquake, I will be spending as much time as possible in the region to do all that I can to aid in the recovery process. We expect an increasing environmental and human (economic and emotional) toll. Working together we can decrease these impacts. Kia kaha Kaikōura.
Before heading to Kaikōura by helicopter on Wednesday, I checked with Rob Roche from Innovative Waste Kaikōura for any urgent needs. Fresh out of a logistics meeting, Porta-Loo sanitiser satchets were top of their list. I acquired 3 cartons and Rob was there to meet me.
