New Zealand bridge breaks apart after unprecedented rainfall – Video

Some areas were expecting half-a-meter (19 inches) of rain.

“The Waiho River Bridge, south of the Franz Josef township on New Zealand’s South Island, was swept away during the unprecedented rainfall, breaking apart piece by piece before being swept away downstream. Another bridge was also damaged during the downpour,” says rt news.

Local authorities declared a state of emergency.
