CYCLONE PAM - DESTRUCTION

#HawkesBay #CyclonePam #TCP #Destruction #Storm #Building

Here's a shot which I took last week showing some of the aftermath from Cyclone Pam in Hawkes Bay.

These properties are regularly battered by the Cape Coast's high seas.  It's amazing that some of them are still standing, nevermind 'habitable'.

This stretch of coast suffers greatly from erosion, and there is a constant battle between the residents of Haumoana, Te Awanga and Clifton with the local Councils to try and save the area from this ever present risk.

I guess it's a case of cost versus the benefit, and the other ramifications associated with building groynes or other defences  as to why this issue is still on-going.
