LOW-LYING LAND FLOODED P.A. TIMARU, Tuesday. Although warnings were broadcast to-day to farmers to prepare for floods owing to rain in the hack country and locally, no rivers have yet overflowed their banks. Lowlying land near the mouth of the Orari River is flooded as a result of water coming through gaps in the stopbanks left unrepaired since the major flood in February. The Bailey bridge erected at Temuka was removed this afternoon as water was washing away the shingle bank' on which the central span rested. Traffic had to make a detour, but had no difficulty in negotiating a stretch of road covered with water from a swollen creek.
