Drought 'broken'

The drought was ‘broken' when significant rain fell during the first week of May. Water shortage directions were cancelled and water restrictions were lifted. By the end of May 2010 many parts of Northland had received double the May average resulting in improved river flows and an increase in soil moisture.
