Risks to low-lying South Dunedin revealed in sea-level rise maps


Digital maps have revealed the impacts of sea-level rise and flooding on South Dunedin.

The low-lying area was hit by flooding on June 3 2015, and later that year Environment Commissioner Dr Jan Wright released a report noting that in Dunedin there were more homes less than 50 centimetres above the high tide mark than any other New Zealand city.
