Super Ringer Spy Ian send in his report regardomg the flood waters that caused some filming to be haulted, and stranded a few WETA folks:

The clean up in and around flood-ravaged Queenstown continues, as pictured on the TV1 Holmes programme this evening (in New Zealand). Old news now as far as the film crew is concerned, but it gives some idea of what the clean up is like concerning the washed-away sets. The item once again mentioned how hard it is to get builders.
