Effects of Cyclone ‘Gita’ catastrophic for some orchardists
According to stuff.co.nz, some orchardists had started harvesting their applies when Gita hit. Up until that moment, it looked like a beautiful crop season.
Some growers lost many trees or had to clean out packing sheds and cool stores, others had to find alternative accommodation for their workers when on-site housing was also swamped.
West Coast-Tasman MP Damien O'Connor, who's also the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Communities, had visited some affected areas and said he believed the effects had been underestimated originally. “It's had a severe impact on a number of orchards and orchard operations," O'Connor said. "The cost of the clean-up alone is going to be a huge burden on those orchard operations."
O'Connor said he was working with Tasman District Council and other Government agencies to determine what help might be available for people.
