Kaeo Webcam

This webcam lets people monitor Kaeo River flooding, which can overflow State Highway 10 just North of the Kaeo Fire Station.

It shows the river with a coloured staff gauge located behind the Fire Station in the background.

The Yellow band indicates when water is reaching SH10, Orange indicates Dip Road flooding and Red shows Peak Flood Level in 2007.
