Henley resident Allan Innes stays put yesterday afternoon at his home after runoff from the hills flooded his driveway.

''I'm not panicking yet. If the rain was to continue for another day I'd be a bit worried. Although there's still a truckload of water to come down from the hills.''

The Taieri River had not breached the floodbanks protecting residents yesterday afternoon, but flows were expected to increase today.

Police visited residents in the area advising them to evacuate.

Mr Innes said he could ''move to higher ground'' at his neighbour's house if need be.
